This project is used for uploading the backups to the ownCloud and managing old backups.
How it works
By default, script expects one file argument, which will be uploaded to ownCloud with
%Y.%m.%d_ time prefix into remote_path directory.
When the file is uploaded, scripts requests listing of all other files in selected remote_path, then reads time informations from names and then removes old files.
Process of removing of old files is defined to keep following files:
- all files from last month
- one file per week for two-months-before
- one file per two weeks for three-months-before
and to remove all older files.
There is possibility of configuration of following variables using conf files
[Login] email@example.com pass=password url=https://owncloud.cesnet.cz [Config] remote_path=/backups no_timestamp=false
All values in Config section and url variable from Login section is optional (defaults are shown in this example).
no_timestamp will instruct the script to stop putting the timestamp prefix to uploaded files. In that case, it is expected that such files will contain the timestamp added manually, or they will be ignored in process of elimination of old files.
All variables defined in configuration file may be also added using commandline arguments:
usage: owncloud_backup.py [-h] [-u USERNAME] [-p PASSWORD] [--url URL] [-r REMOTE_PATH] [-n] FILENAME This program may be used to perform database backups into ownCloud. Configuration file in ini format is expected in `owncloud_backup.cfg` or `~/.owncloud_backup.cfg` paths. positional arguments: FILENAME Upload FILENAME into the ownCloud. optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -u USERNAME, --username USERNAME Username of the ownCloud user. -p PASSWORD, --password PASSWORD Password of the ownCloud user. --url URL URL of the ownCloud service. Default `https://owncloud.cesnet.cz`. -r REMOTE_PATH, --remote-path REMOTE_PATH Path on the server. Default `/backups`. -n, --no-timestamp By default, the script adds `%Y.%m.%d_` prefix to each uploaded file.
sudo pip install owncloud_backup

Project is released under the MIT license. Source code can be found at GitHub:
Almost every feature of the project is tested by unittests. You can run those
tests using provided
run_tests.sh script, which can be found in the root
of the project.
If you have any trouble, just add
--pdb switch at the end of your
run_tests.sh command like this:
./run_tests.sh --pdb. This will drop you to PDB shell.
This script expects that packages pytest is installed. In case you don't have it yet, it can be easily installed using following command:
pip install --user pytest
or for all users:
sudo pip install pytest
