Backing up blobs?

Asked by mark mcdougall on 2015-09-29

I can back up Data.fs but always get stuck backing up blobs.
There used to be a script for it on the Basic database Administration page.
Can anyone advise me?

It is just a regular directory with images, pdf's, etc. You can use tar or whatever.

I could if I were literate. But I am absolute basics language wise, and don't know directory protocols .
I should have asked for the command line prompt, not the script.
Should it be the same as for the hot repozo Data.fs just change the Data.fs to be blobs?

If you're not primarily a Linux person, then 'sudo zip -r schooltool-blobs.zip /var/lib/schooltool/blobs' will create a zip file (owned by root) in the current directory.
