Repository backup

You can back up a branch in your repository by adding an SSH command that will trigger the upload of the newest version to a server after every push to that branch. Here’s how:

  1. Execute the following on the server where you want to keep the data:

     mkdir backup
     cd backup
     git clone --mirror repo_url_ssh$$$
  2. Open the project that you want to backup and go to Pipelines
  3. Add a new pipeline in the automatic mode and add the SSH action
  4. Provide the details of your server and set “backup/repo” as the working directory
  5. In the command field type the following:

    git remote update$

Once you save, the backup will be performed automatically on every push to the branch.
