Ubuntu 18.04 Server Backup

Is there a possible way I backup my Databases and the whole server into a snapshot and I will move it to a MinIO Bucket. If so you save my Dedicated Root Server backup process.

Welcome to the forum!

It is possible to backup a database and a whole Linux system with restic. In order for us to help you, you need to be more specific:

  • What problems did you encounter?
  • What did you try?
  • How did it fail?

Please make sure to paste restic’s output so we can see what’s going on.

What problems did you encounter?
Not really clear docs or I could not find it

What did you try?
Google it but nothing much to find

How did it fail?
No usefull results.

I started my backup script with getting the mysqldump and moving it via the MinIO client to my the other location. Now I want to make a full backup of the server and I did setup MinIO already with restic.

What is the way to go? I want a full server backup that I can restore and have a full functioning server again, if that is possible.

If not, what is possible and what should I do by hand.
