Starting from SqlBak app version 3.2.9, you can export a job to a JSON file and then import it using the SqlBak.Job.Cli.exe utility. This functionality is needed primarily for automated deployment of the SqlBak application and backup jobs creation. A simple tutorial on how to do this is described in the following blog post: How to deploy SqlBak app automatically.
sqlbak.job.cli.exe utility is a programming interface for working with the SqlBak application. It is located in the root directory where the application is installed.
This tool can be used to register the application, manage connections to DBMS, and import jobs from JSON configurations.
When SqlBak is installed on a large number of servers, the deployment can be automated in 3 steps:
- Download and install the SqlBak app
- Connect the SqlBak app to sqlbak.com and to a DBMS
- Add a backup job from a JSON file
NoSQL databases allow us to redefine the way we interact with data. However, data protection requirements remain the same as for SQL databases.
One of the main ways to protect your data is to back it up regularly. This article will help you protect your data for the most popular NoSQL database – MongoDB.
When you face any issues with SqlBak our support team may ask you to send the Advanced Log. Below is a short tutorial on how to do this.
Starting from SqlBak version 3 you can backup MySQL Server databases. SqlBak supports 2 ways on how you can connect to your MySQL databases: phpMyAdmin and TCP/IP. Below you can find a step-by-step tutorial on how to backup your MySQL Server database via TCP/IP connection. To backup MySQL Server databases, SqlBak uses the mysqldump utility. For now, with SqlBak on Windows, only full MySQL backups are available.
“There are two types of people: people who do backup, and people who will start doing it.”
If you are not backing up your MySQL databases yet, you should start doing it before you lose your precious data.
Making backups is necessary, but doing this with large databases may involve high server load and using up storage space. And only creating a backup once a day or once a week could lead to losing hours of work. So how can you make backups more often without overloading the server? Incremental backups can help you with this.
