1. Currently, backups are automatically performed on the data disk attached to elearning.ufp.pt on /mnt/data. The data disk holds the following information:

  • MySQL Databases
  • MySQL Binary Logs
  • Sakai home folder
  • Sakai Resources I (file-based storage): read more in Sakai resources
  • Apache webpages (wiki, stats, etc)


2. Additionally, all servers (elearning.ufp.pt, elearning-b.ufp.pt, elearning-vc.ufp.pt, elearning-ss.ufp.pt) perform nightly backups of most important configuration files to elearning-ss.ufp.pt via NFS (typically mounted on /mnt/nfs/backups).


3. Old Sakai files (Sakai Resources II) are on elearning-ss.ufp.pt, accessible to elearning.ufp.pt via NFS on /mnt/nfs/sakai-content-hosting-2.


4. Server configuration files (2.) and Sakai Resources II (3.) are then copied for backup purposes to the SAN device attached to elearning-ss.ufp.pt, on a nightly basis.


5. For MySQL restoring, follow the instructions outlined in the official MySQL page: Point-in-Time Data Recovery
