Subject Best practice for backing up CouchDB
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 14:46:50 GMT
Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone had any hints, tips or tricks for doing live, incremental backups
of a CouchDB install?

I'm assuming that the data are in the .couch files, and the generated views are in the .db_name_design
folders, ergo, I should make sure that the .couch files are totally safe, and the views can
be backed up, to a degree, but can always be regenerated from the .couch files?

Are there any access/locking/permissions issues that anyone's come across?

Many thanks,
