Hi there. I’ve developed this bash script that completely automates easyengine website backups and makes them available to restore with one single command on a completely separate machine.
One touch, three minute install Set it and forget it, will automatically run a backup every night and email you in case of failure Works with all easyengine site types Perfectly restores every aspect of every single easyengine website you’re hosting, from your database, to your files, and so on Stores backups both locally and remotely [on S3] Encrypts all remote backups with a 42 character passphrase Allows you to restore your backup with one single command and a maximum of three minutes of your time even from a blank machine you’ve never set up before Performs DNS checks and prompts you to activate LetsEncrypt on newly restored sites [work in progress…] Does NOT rely on easyengine’s database but rather directly scans your /var/www/ directory Performs a test restore before every backup to ensure remote backup integrity and passphrase match Returns detailed errors in case of failure to help you get your data back during a restore
I’m still actively developing it so please report back your experience with the script. Always test your backups to ensure they’re correct should you ever need to restore them.
Thank you in advance for your help improving ee-br!
