Disaster Recovery

Periodically snapshot the entire --data directory

Bytebase stores its own data into a SQLite file called bytebase.dbunder the --data directory. Besides the main data file, SQLite also creates 2 additional files: bytebase.db-shm for managing share memory and bytebase.db-wal for write ahead logging.

You should just periodically backup the entire --data directory. If you want to backup the data when Bytebase is running and is NOT running with --readonly, then the underlying data volume must support snapshot feature where the entire directory can take a snapshot at the same time, otherwise it may produce a corrupted backup file.

Another option is to use Litestream to continuously stream SQLite changes to AWS S3, Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage, SFTP, or NFS.
