backing up files

What is the best method of backing up the OpenClinca data? Backing up just the Postgres database, or is there a more involved procedure? Is there an automatic backup function within OpenClinica?

    It is important to also remember to archive and back up your data directory. This directory contains all of the CRF original and template designs, as well as all of the exported datasets. This is the directory specified by the filePath property in datainfo.properties.

    In the past, we have typically done something like pg_dump to isolate all the data into a .SQL file, and then re-inserted that data to rebuild a database. You can manipulate the command to save data only, and keep all data in the form of INSERTs only. If you need more information, I can dig up some sample commands and you can try them out on your own instance of OpenClinica.

    Hope that helps,
    Tom
