#31 closed defect (FIXED)
Tool to create a tarball of the current environment (database, media files, etc)
|Reported by:||Christopher Allan Webber||Owned by:||joar|
It would be great if we had a tool that could do something like: :: ./bin/gmg environment_tarball mediagoblin.ini tarball_name.tar.gz That contained something like: :: ./mediagoblin_db.json ./public_store/ # all public store files kept here ./queue_store/ # all queue store files kept here

Right now, the easiest way to back up the databases is with mongodump, which exports bson (binary json). To export all of the relevant databases: :: mongodump --db mediagoblin --out /path/to/dump/to/ mongodump --db kombu_default --out /path/to/dump/to/ These can then be restored using ``mongorestore`` To get ASCII json instead of bson, you have to use ``mongoexport``. ``mongoexport`` requires you to specify a collection (table) to export -- you can't just export an entire mongo db as json (see the relevant `feature request <https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/SERVER-201?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel>`_). Example usage (export the "media\_entries" collection from the "mediagoblin" database: :: mongoexport -d mediagoblin -c media_entries

Grabbing this one to implement whatever is missing for allowing a hacker-type person to backup and restore a single user's stuff from the command line.

This is coding, or maybe documentation later. Definitely not infrastructure.

I was thinking this was infrastructure because it's part of the administration scripts and build environment stuff. I guess I don't understand the categories.

I would like to use the 'import' side of this feature to load test data during index unit testing, so I added that this feature blocks `#432 </issues/432>`_. My thinking is, if we had good test data we could assert limits on how long queries should take using explain().

|Milestone:||0.0.4 → 0.0.5|
I can't get to this for 0.0.4, so I want to push it off to 0.0.5.

Made a few changes. You can now not have to provide the cache\_dir to the command line, and instead of using /tmp/mediagoblin/ it'll make a new temporary directory using the tempfile module. Tried it locally... worked great! :) Merged and pushed. Thanks so much Joar... this is an awesome and much needed feature!
