Configuration reference

There are 3 sections:

  • Access: Describes authorization details, name it eg. server1 and put url and token
  • Encryption: Encryption type and password (if any) to encrypt your files stored on File Repository
  • Backups: Describes where is your data, how to access it and under which COLLECTION to send it to File Repository
  • Recoveries: Recovery plans. A policy + list of “backups” to restore within a single command

Example scenario:

  1. You have a server under and token “XXX-YYY-ZZZ-123”, you name it “ait_backups” under access section
  2. You want to have encrypted backups using AES 256 CBC, then you add “ait_secret” under encryption with passphrase “something-secret” and type “aes-256-cbc”
  3. Next you want to define where is the data, in our example it’s in a docker container under /var/lib/mysql and we want to send this data to collection “123-456-789-000”. You should reference “ait_backups” access and “ait_secret” as the encryption method for your backup there.

Environment variables

If you want to use environment variables, use bash-like syntax ${SOME_ENV_NAME}.

NOTE: In case you will not set a variable in the shell, then application will not start, it will throw a configuration error.

Application configuration

Notice: Below example uses environment variables eg. ${DB_HOST}, you may want to replace them with values like localhost or others
