This is part of a series of discussions regarding Deploying to a Digital Ocean Droplet.

For more details, please see Deploy TaskMuncher

Backup

Just in caseā€¦

Preparation

I prefer to store configuration and scripts outside of the droplet and copy them to the droplet. Thus, if I need to replace the droplet or to build another droplet, I already have the essential files with which I can quickly build that droplet.

Build the basics.

cd websites-config
mkdir taskmuncher-config
cd taskmuncher-config
mkdir taskmuncher

cd taskmuncher
mkdir bin nginx save-env ssh

Backup Script

cd websites-config/taskmuncher-config

Create backup-server

#!/bin/sh
#
# script to get the valuables from taskmuncher
#
echo "Script to get the valuables from taskmuncher"
echo " "
#
REMOTE_SERVER="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
REMOTE_USER=".."
REMOTE_HOME="/..../.."
LOCAL_SAVED="backup"
REMOTE_NGINX="/etc/nginx"
#
echo " "
echo "Remote Server: REMOTE_SERVER"
echo "Remote user: $REMOTE_USER"

echo " "
echo "Creating local directories"
echo " "
#
mkdir -p $LOCAL_SAVED/bin
mkdir -p $LOCAL_SAVED/cronjobs
mkdir -p $LOCAL_SAVED/save-env
mkdir -p $LOCAL_SAVED/nginx

#
echo "Copy ssh files"
scp -r $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/.ssh $LOCAL_SAVED/ssh
#
echo "Copy .profile"
scp $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/.profile $LOCAL_SAVED/.
#
echo "Copy .vimrc"
scp $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/.vimrc $LOCAL_SAVED/.
#
echo "Copy first-deploy"
scp $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/first-deploy $LOCAL_SAVED/.
#
echo "Copy bin"
scp -r $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/bin $LOCAL_SAVED/.
#
echo "Copy save-env"
scp -r $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/save-env $LOCAL_SAVED/.
#
echo "Copy cronjobs"
scp -r $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/cronjobs $LOCAL_SAVED/.
#
echo "Copy nginx.conf"
scp $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_NGINX/nginx.conf $LOCAL_SAVED/nginx/.
#
echo "Copy nginx"
scp -r $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_NGINX/sites-available $LOCAL_SAVED/nginx/.
scp -r $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_NGINX/snippets $LOCAL_SAVED/nginx/.
#
echo "Copy h5bp"
scp -r $REMOTE_USER@$REMOTE_SERVER:$REMOTE_HOME/h5bp $LOCAL_SAVED/nginx/.
#
echo "Completed"
#

Replace the REMOTE_fields with your actual values.

Execute Backup Script

cd websites-config/taskmuncher-config
./ backup-server

Files will be copied from the droplet to

websites-config/taskmuncher-config/backup
