Provide daily gzip'ed subversion dumps at

Reported by: hobu Owned by: hobu
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Systems Admin Keywords:


We have a need to provided daily subversion dumps for the OSSIM project, and I think we should do this for any project that wants it.

The script would need to do the following:

  • hotcopy into /home/back/svn_backup/project/hot and overwrite whatever is there
  • svnadmin dump > project.dump
  • gzip project.dump
  • mv project.dump to /var/www/svn/dumps and overwrite whatever is there

The /etc/httpd/conf.d/hosts/subversion file would need a Location added to support reading out of this directory. The script would need to be put in /root/scripts. The /etc/cron.d/backup.cron table would also need to be updated to run this daily.

I won't be able to pick this one up for a week or so, but it should be pretty straightforward for someone else to do so.

I have implemented this at by augmenting the incremental_svn backup script in /var/www/svn/tools/ The incremental script works by doing svn look to see which revisions it hasn't backed up and creates a gzip file in both /home/back/svn_backup (for rsync copy to the other Peer1 machine) *and* a gzip file in /var/www/svn/docroot/dumps where someone can come along and do a wget --mirror. To be useful, the incremental files must be cat'ed together in chronological order, which should be able to be determined by the filename.
