Backup Buddy Pre-Sales Tech Question
Posted 02 July 2013 - 08:41 AM
1. our current configuration has 2 load balanced, DMZ web facing servers with read-only access to an NFS share/remote mysql database and 1 administrative server, with full access to the nfs mount and mysql server. Is there any issues in regards to backup buddy that our main installation of Wordpress is on server a., but our dbase is on a separate server? As well as our wp-content directory is mounted on all servers as the document root, but actually resides on an NFS mount remotely?
2. what happens if we do a full backup, if it does function in the above environment, and then want to restore that backup to a new machine in the event of a system failure. Will the restore try and replicate the environment completely or install it all locally or do we need to have the machines already in place and connected?

1. Remote database is fine. Instead of localhost you would have some other server. As for files, as long as they are mounted like a normal directory then files should be no problem. As far as BackupBuddy is concerned it sounds like all will "appear" normal to it.
2. BackupBuddy will replicate so much as all files will be restored to a directory. If this directory is mounted to a remote dir or whatever then BackupBuddy does not know or care. For database restore you enter the database server and it restores it there, depends some on how it is all set up I suppose.
