This image provides an easy way to tar.gz a folder and upload to S3 scheduled by a cron. This is designed to be a lightweight image built on alpine 3.3.
docker pull thomaslomas/s3cmd-cron
docker run -it --rm --env AWS_ACCESS_KEY="ABC123" --env AWS_SECRET_KEY="dfdsfsf/234234fgf/example" --env AWS_BUCKET=s3://my-backup-bucket --env AWS_BUCKET_LOCATION=EU -v /var/important-folder:/backup --env BACKUP_SCHEDULE="0 * * * *" thomaslomas/s3cmd-cron
|AWS_ACCESS_KEY||Y||This is your AWS Access Key|
|AWS_SECRET_KEY||Y||This is your AWS Secret Key|
|AWS_BUCKET||Y||This is the full bucket path of where to put the files. E.g. "s3://my-bucket-name"|
|AWS_BUCKET_LOCATION||N||US||This is the AWS bucket location|
|BACKUP_SCHEDULE||N||0 3 *||This is how often the cron should execute. This defaults to 3am|
You must register a data volume at /backup. This is the folder which will be archived and uploaded to S3 as per the schedule.
I took some influence from sekka1/docker-s3cmd.
