A few months ago I wrote a article about a MongoDB backup script.

It worked, but after a while it became useless because it kept locking mynMongoDB server. And with that lock it did not open it afterwards so my sitesnjust crashed.n< !–more –>nThis happend because the MongoDb was just to big to handle within a reasonablentime. So I had to write another MongoDB backups script.

This script, creates a backup from any MongoDB database, turns it into a tarnfile and moves it to any Amazon S3 environment.

MongoDB Backups script

The script is pretty straight forward. Just change the [vars] and you cannbackup your MongoDB!

Have fun using it!
