Automatic backups


#1

Hi,

How to set automatic backups so the database will backup, for example once a week?


#2

Hi ,

you can use task scheduler in Windows or crontab in linux for example,

Best regards


#3

so Influxdb does not have any built-in function for automatic backups?

No, I don’t know what database does have such a ‘built-in’ function, since it is very much relying on the use case. There are some tools, to do a backup and restore of a database. But I read there were also some issues, so better read and test.
