Better MongoDB backup script with Tar and move to S3 Bucket
A few months ago I wrote a article about a MongoDB backup script.
It worked, but after a while it became useless because it kept locking my MongoDB server. And with that lock it did not open it afterwards so my sites just crashed. < !–more –> This happend because the MongoDb was just to big to handle within a reasonable time. So I had to write another MongoDB backups script.
This script, creates a backup from any MongoDB database, turns it into a tar file and moves it to any Amazon S3 environment.
MongoDB Backups script
The script is pretty straight forward. Just change the [vars] and you can backup your MongoDB!
Have fun using it!
