Backup Layer

Rattail provides a command (rattail backup) to orchestrate the backup of Linux machines (sorry, no Windows support). That is what we’ll discuss here.

Note that this can be used to backup “any” Linux machine, if you install the utilities described. In other words it’s not just for backing up a “Rattail server” per se.

In fact even if you do have a Rattail app server, it’s recommended that you install the “backup app” separately and do not put your existing Rattail app in charge of backups.
