You may want to schedule backups of your
openshift application daily, weekly, or monthly.
It can be done in two simple steps
1.Create a backup application
First we need to spin up a backup application
rhc app create osbs https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wshearn/openshift-cartridge-osbs/master/metadata/manifest.yml http://tinyurl.com/OpenShiftRedisCart cron --no-git
Once it is created, it will give your username and password. Please make a note of it.
2.Create a backup cartridge
Then you have to add backup cartridge to the application for which you want to take backup.
rhc cartridge add -a <application to backup> -c https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wshearn/openshift-cartridge-osbs-client/master/metadata/manifest.yml
Once it is done, you can login with username and password(that you got in previous step) in the following URL and schedule the backups.
Hope it helps. Have a nice day.
