Lightning-fast WordPress on Nginx

ss dump database


  • runs /var/www/ss-dump-database

Default interval:

  • hourly


This command (and the bash script it correlates with) are called by SlickStack on the hourly interval by default. This can be changed to a different interval within your ss-config file if desired… for example, if your production site is extremely busy, or your database is extremely large, you might want to change this interval to half-daily or something else. When you dump your database, an SQL dump file will be generated under /var/www/backups/mysql/production.sql and will overwrite that filename location every time it runs (older dump files will be overwritten and replaced).
