Nuxeo Cron Backup

This is a node.js application I have developed to backup Nuxeo 5.5 open source Enterprise Content Management system. At the moment the target system is Windows but adapting it to Linux or OSX should be an easy task.

The application periodically commits all Nuxeo data to a local Git repository and is able to restore a specific revision to the disk without having to restart Nuxeo server (at least it may be necessary that you disconnect to refresh the application cache). All you have to do is to click on the "Restore" button.

Install

Install Node 0.6.X then:

npm install cronbackup

You also need to download and install Git for Windows. If it's installed in the default folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Git), the application will manage to find it itself, otherwise you will have to enter the full path to cmd/git.cmd in the settings.json configuration file (search git.cmd field).

Usage

If you accepted all the default settings when you installed Nuxeo, all you have to do is to run the Express application:

node app

If all goes well, you're ready to visit your backup application at:

http://localhost:3000

The Web interface is pretty simple. It shows a list of the different backup versions available. You can click on an item to see some more details and to restore it to the disk.

Configuration

All available configuration options can be found in settings.json:

  • cron.data -- cron time pattern for Nuxeo data backup
  • cron.program -- cron time pattern for Nuxeo program backup
  • port -- Bind the app server to the given port
  • auth -- HTTP basic authentication user name and password
  • git.cmd -- Command to use in order to launch the stupid content tracker
  • git.dir -- Base path to the repositories
  • git.config -- Git repository options
  • nuxeo.regkey -- Windows registry key where to read Nuxeo configuration values

  • nuxeo.datadir -- Path to Nuxeo data folder
  • nuxeo.logdir -- Path to Nuxeo logs folder
  • nuxeo.requiredParam -- A config error is thrown if this array values are not set in nuxeo.conf
  • nuxeo.dumpfile -- Path to database dump file (must be somewhere in Nuxeo Program Data folder)
  • db.regkey -- Windows registry key where to read Postgresql configuration values
  • db.dump -- Command to use in order to launch the pg_dump utility
  • db.restore -- Command to use in order to launch the pg_restore utility
  • db.host -- Nuxeo database host URL
  • db.port -- Nuxeo database host port
