Tomato Router Config – Backup Script

Posted: March 18th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Linux, Tech | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | 2 Comments »

I recently was given the task to automate the backups of several remote routers that we manage that run tomato firmware.
Here is the Tomato developer’s site: www.polarcloud.com/tomato
The main goals were:

  • To use https
  • To be automated (Cron)’d later
  • To scale from 1 to 1XXX routers

I tested it on Tomato Firmware 1.28 using my ASUS RT-N16 router, but it should work for any Tomato-firmware router.
There will be some slight modifications to run in cron, but let me know and I’ll be glad to help.
Download the .zip file here: tomatobackup1405

Extract the file so the full path will be /root/tomatobackup1405
Read the README inside the folder
chmod +x tomatobackup1405.sh
Add your hosts to the tomatobackup1405_hosts.cfg file
Run it!

If successful, you will see a subfolder with the date YYYYMMDD and the file with CoName-tomato_v_.cfg
If there are connection problems, you’ll see an error message.

EDIT: There was a python rewrite by Sam@orgraphone.org
Feel free to check it out here

Let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions.

Safe1405 – Automated or Interactive Asterisk backup solution -with auto FTP upload

Posted: April 27th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Asterisk VoIP, Linux, Tech, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | 6 Comments »

Summary:

Safe1405 is a bash script that will backup the popular Asterisk directories and place them in a tar.gz file. The script can be used in 1 of 2 modes.
The first mode is interactive, with a menu to choose:

  • Backup Everything (/etc/asterisk, Voicemail, Recordings, Sounds)
  • Just VM
  • Just Recordings
  • Just Sounds

After the file is created, it will prompt to upload to a remote FTP server.

The second mode is silent, and is best suited for automated execution via cron or at.
Just enable the UNATTENDED and PUT_FTP variables by setting them to “1″.  You can directly edit the paths to each directory if yours are non-standard.

The script can be directly downloaded here: Safe1405 Download Link
