Vhosts: Backups

This document describes the current backup mechanisms for vhost (website) and database data.

CAE vhosts' data is currently backed up nightly using an rsync and filesystem snapshot mechanism. These provide a point in time view of vhost data which we currently attempt to retain (subject to capacity and other system constraints) according the following schedule:

  • 30 days
  • 4 first of the weeks
  • 6 first of the months

CAE MySQL databases are currently backed up separately, but also on a nightly schedule using mysqldump. They are configured to be retained according to the following schedule:

  • 30 days
  • 6 first of the months

If you need data restored from a backup, please use the forms found at http://my.cae.wisc.edu/forms/recovery/.
