Automate backup?

I can see how to create a backup, however this appears to be a manual process.

I need to login as an admin to the Confluence admin section and then visit the "Backup Manager" section. Once there, I need to click on "Create Backup".

How can I automate backups of Confluence OnDemand?

Hi Aaron, this is an example of bash script to automate backups for JIRA Ondemand, you may want to tweak it a little to create Confluence backups as well.

I hope it helps.


Thanks. How do you run an external bash script on Windows?

Hi Aaron, actually bash scripts can only be executed on Linux based systems. You could do something similar with bat scripts or powershell on Windows, but that is a totally different language, you'd need to completelly rewrite the script.
