git - How do I make GitLab delete old backups? - Server Fault | https://serverfault.com/
In /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb I added the following line:

gitlab_rails['backup_keep_time'] = 60


Don't forget 'gitlab-ctl reconfigure' after that.

rotate-backups 4.4 : Python Package Index
Works, but filenames like '1495849557_2017_05_26_9.2.0_gitlab_backup.tar' will confuse it.

Backup Eclipse settings - Stack Overflow
We use the concept of a baseline for new dev's but I think you can apply the same technique. Basically, what you need to do is this:

Get a new copy of Ecipse and set it up how you like with no projects.
Take a copy both the Eclipse install directory and the workspace - zip them up and store them somewhere
Remove the workspace link in Window -> Preferences -> Workspaces
When you need a new version, copy the template version down and voila!

Hope this helps.

Backup MySQL Server - Server Fault
mysqldump breaks down when you have big databases, and/or when you rely on MyISAM. We have some 400G databases with a lot of indexes that needs to be rebuilt when importing the dump, so that a recovery from backup takes tree days. LVM snapshot gives a much better recovery time when you've outgrown mysqldump

YamlDb is a database-independent format for dumping and restoring data. It complements the the database-independent schema format found in db/schema.rb. The data is saved into db/data.yml.

This can be used as a replacement for mysqldump or pg_dump, but only for the databases typically used by Rails apps. Users, permissions, schemas, triggers, and other advanced database features are not supported - by design.

Any database that has an ActiveRecord adapter should work. This gem is now Rails 3 only. For Rails 2, clone and checkout the Rails2 branch.


Note that /this/ is still totally wrong:
rake db:data:dump_dir -> Dump contents of database to curr_dir_name/tablename.extension (defaults to yaml)
rake db:data:load_dir -> Load contents of db/data_dir into database


What it actually does is creates timestamped subfolder in Rails.root/db, *then* creates .yml files by table name. It completely ignores curr_dir_name, whatever that's supposed to mean.

Note: To quickly access the Application Data folder, click Start, and choose Run. Type %appdata% and click OK.

Suggestion: Pinboard as Instapaper Alternative - Google Groups
* Get your unread RSS feed from the unread page (i.e. http://feeds.pinboard.in/rss/secret:[your secret key]/u:[your user name]/toread/)
* Set up an account on IFTTT.
* Set up a recipe that sends your Pinboard unread RSS feed to Instapaper.
* Delete your unread Pinboard items if they begin to bother you.
* Archive or delete your Instapaper items after you read them, safe in the knowledge that they are already saved on Pinboard.
* Never worry about Instapaper bookmarkletting again as long as IFTTT exists. Bookmark using Pinboard only.
