We should back up our database. We'd be pretty sad if it disappeared.

From: Eric Price <ecprice@MIT.EDU>                                                                            
Subject: Oops, I deleted the database

I don't think we backed it up anywhere, did we?

Oh, never mind, it's still there.  For now.

There's a cron job running as xvm on that backs up the database hourly at :01 after the hour into /mit/xvm/cron_scripts/db-backups/.

It uses its own user account that has read-only permission on the database, and it is forced to use an SSL connection.
