If you work with a Linux server you should schedule your backup with cron


the job you have to schedule is something like this:

sudo -u openerp pg_dump <name of="" the="" database=""> > backup_file.sql

Hope this helps

I found a link which was related to this question. http://help.openerp.com/question/8899/how-do-i-automate-database-backups/ I also tried the python script mentioned in the link, but it does'nt work

1) You could use http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.0/static/continuous-archiving.html (Continuous Archiving) Postgres feature.

2) There is a the http://www.pgbarman.org/ (pgBarman project)
