narada-backup - prepare consistent project backup
This document describes narada-backup version 1.2.2
At first run prepare full project backup in 'var/backup/full.tar'. On next runs prepare incremental backup in 'var/backup/incr.tar' plus append it to full backup in 'var/backup/full.tar' (using tar -A).
Because of used technique of quick full backup update, full backup will grow on each run. To keep file with full backup on reasonable size, you should force full backup from time to time.
To force full backup you should remove 'var/backup/full.tar' before running narada-backup.
Both full and incremental backups should be unpacked as incremental tar archives, see http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/tar/Incremental-Dumps.html.
Before preparing backup will run narada-mysqldump.
Files and directories listed in config/backup/exclude (use syntax suitable for tar's --exclude option) will not be included in backup.
Will exit with non-zero exit status if backup process failed.
Script must be executed only from "project root directory".
Use files in var/backup/.
