Bitucket Backup and restore on Windows Edited

I want to implement backup and restore strategy for Bitbucket Server(5.0.0) installed on local server. And I want to do this with Zero downtime.


I have gone through Zero Downtime Plugin but did not got clue for the windows. 

The script is *.sh and can not see any batch or powershell. 

Also the configuration arguments did not found the windows specific.


Am I missing something.


Is anyone using zero downtime plugin on windows ? or any other plugin/way to have backups done on Windows platform.

Hey Shreedhar,

The Zero Downtime backup, that you linked to, is part of the DIY Backup Scripts in which you need Cygwin to execute the shell scripts. 

You'll also want to make sure that you mind the prerequisites for zero downtime backups.


We can not install Cygwin as this is restricted server. Is there any windows specific solution.

Hey Shreedhar,

Unfortunately, there isn't if your goal is to take advantage of Zero Downtime backups.
