Introduction

The following script was written to provide a quick way to run a backup of the Request Tracker application installation. This is a good tool to use if you're hacking at templates and objects to ensure that you have a known good restore point.

Requirements

I wrote this for Debain Sarge/Stable and it depends on having the exim4 mailer installed. I also requires that there is a ''tmp'' dir in ''/root''. You can of course change this to whatever directory that you wish. I'll be refining this script as time permits.

Caveat Emptor

This script is provided with no warranties expressed or implied. Use your own risk. Milage may vary.

TODO

  • Add section to detect mailer and automatically set this envvar
  • Add automatic tmpfile cleanup
