Database Architecture
Last updated 8 months ago.

Simple: use mysqldump (Linux CLI software, available on most webservers) to dump the database to a .sql-file and copy it to you backup location using you favourite tool (in my case: duplicity to write encrypted and signed backups to off-site backup servers).

I can't think of an easy way to make incremental backups... maybe someone else has some ideas about it.

You're going to have to set up a cron job for that. I set my cron job up to execute the artisan command provided in this library:

https://github.com/CoreProc/laravel-db-backup

This library gives you the option to upload your database backup to Amazon S3 and specify a data retention duration.

Backing up your default database in laravel is as easy as executing this artisan command once you have this library installed:

php artisan db:backup

If you need help with the cron job, let me know.

I'm using http://sourceforge.net/projects/automysqlbackup/ on my homestead dev, though it should work with most any linux server.

On my dev vm I have it configured to backup the database on vm shutdown and it creates the daily/weekly/montly archive structure.

From my opinion you can use CloudBacko (http://www.cloudbacko.com/mysql-backup.jsp?r=1d) MySQL database backup solution. CloudBacko is one of the fastest cloud and local backup software for MySQL Database available in the market because of its built-in speed boosting technologies. I hope this will be helpful for you.

You can use https://github.com/sebastianfeldmann/phpbu Create a phpbu config file (check http://phpbu.de for a getting started tutorial) In combination with a cronjob Edit your crontab file

$ crontab -e

Add a line like this

13 4 * * * phpbu --configuration=/var/www/myProject/backup/phpbu.xml

Backup will run every day at 4:13 With phpbu you can Monitor your Backup creation and send emails if something is going wrong You could even easily sync your backups to cloudservices like dropbox or copy.com or just another server of yours with rsync or sftp.

I've made a Laravel 5 package that provides you with an artisan command to backup not only your database but also your entire application: https://github.com/freekmurze/laravel-backup

The backup is a zipfile that contains all files in the directories you specify along with a dump of your database. The backup can be stored on any of the filesystems you have configured in Laravel 5.

simple, just run an rsync command for the mysql data folder once in a while. If you have a huge database, running mysqldump will slow the server. rsync or cp will just copy the database file and is faster.
