I am very interested in setting up an automatic backup, so I don't have to manually backup the database multiple times a day. After taking a look at this and this post, I'm not sure whether I can use such a solution on my platform. I am using Windows Server 2003 to host my OpenERP package, can I make use of crontab as explained by Arif in the second post?
I never did something like this before, so any information given on this topic would be very much appreciated. I love using and learning from OpenERP, but it's not easy to do so when nearly all information seems to be written specifically for Linux.
This is something you'd want to read through. http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Automated_Backup_on_Windows
At any rate, I'd still suggest at least running a virtual machine with Ubuntu (or whatever other *nix distro you'd prefer otherwise) to host OpenERP on, rather than directly on Windows. The performance gain even in that scenario is worth looking into, and the support is much better. OpenERP is written on and for Linux, just ported to Windows.
