Re: SUMMARY: SEEKING: Method to script backups of Odoo v9 - also include filestore (anything else??)by
MY ORIGINAL QUESTION:
Is scripting a backup of Odoo v9 as simple as pg_dump and copying the relevant filestore folder?
1. pg_dump -E UTF-8 -F p -b -f $filename $database
2. tar -zcvf filestore_$filename.gz $database
3. move both to the new server, restore dump and folder and update database ?
Does anyone know (have experience or a verified method for doing this) ?
I want to start testing how I can quickly move a database from one server to another.

in my scripts I use -O and -U options
-E UTF-8 -F p -b options should be useless

if target database already exists, dropdb after closing all connectionsrestoration with psql and tar -xzf for the filestorechange owner:group on filestore according to the new server
depending on your context, you may have to synchronize/adapt someoptions in the server config file and also the modules that users canupload from the apps.
A key point is to determine whether the copied database is a copy or areplacement of the main database. If a copy, the new database shouldnot interface external applications (pop/imap, smtp, shop-connectoretc...), if a replacement it should
