== Configuring the wiki installation ==
== Backing up this Wiki ==
This is the research completed at the digital gardening bee 30th June 2018—it is yet to be implemented:<blockquote>1. Use mysqldump to make a backup </blockquote><blockquote> You’ll want to save to a different filename every time, e.g. </blockquote><blockquote>nice -n 19 mysqldump -u $USER --password=$PASSWORD $DATABASE -c | nice -n 19 gzip -9 > ~/backup/wiki-$DATABASE-$(date '+%Y%m%d').sql.gz</blockquote><blockquote>You can skip the “nice -n 19” parts of this command, but the useful part is the date. </blockquote><blockquote>3. Test that the backup works </blockquote><blockquote> </blockquote><blockquote>I’m not super clear on how to test. </blockquote><blockquote>4. Passwords are hashed and salted, so it’s probably ok. Use scp/sftp to copy, e.g. </blockquote><blockquote>scp wikifile.gz remote.server:~/backups/ </blockquote><blockquote>5. You can put all that in a batch script and then use crontab. See </blockquote><blockquote></blockquote>
