We're considering strategy for backuping Confluence (content+configuration) running with PostgreSQL DB. Our idea is to involve simple file copy for Confluence files and pg_dump for DB. I guess pg_dump is good approach for PGSQL, but I am not sure about the Confluence. We've made a lot of customization in Confluence, and we want to keep it all for restoring (plugins, settings, etc.). What do you think?
Yes, you are on the right track. Do the DB backup and also save most of the home directory. We backup the attachments directory separately and then the home directory with the following excludes:
['attachments', 'logs', 'backups', 'restore', 'temp', 'viewfile', 'oscache', 'plugin-cache', 'plugins-temp']
