Management commands to help backup and restore your project database and media files

Django Database Backup

Documentation Status Jazzband

This Django application provides management commands to help backup and restore your project database and media files with various storages such as Amazon S3, Dropbox, local file storage or any Django storage.

It is made to:

  • Allow you to secure your backup with GPG signature and encryption
  • Archive with compression
  • Deal easily with remote archiving
  • Keep your development database up to date
  • Use Crontab or Celery to setup automated backups


See our official documentation at Read The Docs.

It gives a simple interface to backup and restore your database or media files.
