Yubikey OTP support

If you have secured your WordPress blog with the Yubikey OTP plugin, the -O option is made for you ! By this way, you will be prompted to enter your OTP.

With Docker

docker run --rm -it -v <local path>:/backups

local path refers to the folder on your host system where the backup file will be stored.

If you want to store the backup file in your current directory :

docker run --rm -it -v $(pwd):/backups

And if you want to specify some options :

docker run --rm -it -v $(pwd):/backups -d /backups <options>
