How can I setup schedule and automatic backups?

I need to setup the schedule and automatic backups, please give me the steps to do this.

Hi Milan,

For scheduler, See point no. 10 in install instructions - https://github.com/webnotes/erpnext/wiki/How-to-Install-ERPNext

For automatic backups, you can use:
* 0 * * * cd [PATH TO ERPNEXT INSTALLATION] && python lib/wnf.py --backup >> /var/log/erpnext-backup.log 2>&1
For now, you will need to manually clear old backups or write a script to do that, so that space doesn't run out.
Using the above crontab entry, the backups will be taken at midnight every day and will be available in public/backups folder.

Thanks,
Anand.

PS.

We are using the hosted version of ERPNext. Than what’s the procedure?

If you are hosting on your server, please follow the reply I sent earlier. See - https://groups.google.com/d/msg/erpnext-user-forum/eYxFdDGQRJY/BkOzKwkttKsJ

If you have an account with erpnext, we maintain backups from our side.

Thanks,
Anand.
