A defined backup process encourages effort.

  • MediaWiki is run on Synology NAS
  • Hyper Backup package is configured to back up mediawiki directory and MariaDB
  • the 'backup' is chronological and the database can be restored within minutes
    • an 'export' backup is not recommended because it does not include file uploads, like images
    • the argument for each page being exported is that it's more future-proof (anything can read simple pages, like xml files or pdf) however considering MediaWiki is backed by one of the most popular websites in the world, I feel a full database backup is sufficient for future portability
