OL: main backups location

:: ol-home

The main backup files are located at

  • /1/postgres_backups/backups$

    contains the postgres database dumps for openlibrary and coverstore databases.

  • /1/postgres_backups/base_backups$

    is a copy of the postgres database directory. Very useful for restoring in case of crashes.

  • /1/postgres_backups/pg_xlog_archive$

    Postgres maintains Write-Ahead-Log (WAL) files. They are used in replication and for point-in-time recovery (restore the database to a timestamp).

If there are issues about the generation of the backup files please be sure the folder /olsystem/etc/crond.d/pg-backups has permits 644.
