Cron Job Procedure Guide
This procedure performs two functions:
    1.
    All Couchbase records are backed up into a timestamped folder in the /opt/plextrac/backups/ directory.
    2.
    All uploaded documents (scanner exports, templates, images, etc) are backed up into the /opt/plextrac/uploads folder
We highly encourage you to institute a local process for pushing the backed-up data off the local server. After performing a backup, the command
1
tar -zvcf $(hostname)_$(date "+%Y-%m-%d")_backup.tar.gz backups/ uploads/
Copied!
will create a tarball of ALL full backups in the /opt/plextrac/backups folder. Before running this command, you may desire to delete older full backups from the backups/ folder.
