gm-backup_database — complete backup of GNUmed database




The gm-backup_database script creates a backup of the database schema, data, and roles which can be used to restore a GNUmed database from scratch.

It is a really good idea to use it in a daily cron/anacron job to ensure that GNUmed patient data are safe against data loss.  The Debian GNU/Linux packaged version of the GNUmed server installs such a cron job by default.
