10 Backup and Restore
As with everything that contains valuable data, PostgreSQL databases should be backed up regularly. While the procedure is essentially simple, it is important to have a basic understanding of the underlying techniques and assumptions.
There are three fundamentally different approaches to backing up PostgreSQL data:
- SQL dump
- File system level backup
- Continuous archiving
Each has its own strengths and weaknesses.
