NAME

gm-zip+sign_backups - pack and sign backups of GNUmed databases

SYNOPSIS

gm-zip+sign_backups

DESCRIPTION

The gm-zip+sign_backups script compresses and signs GNUmed database backups. It is a really good idea to use it in a daily cron/anacron job to ensure that GNUmed patient data are safe against data loss. The Debian GNU/Linux packaged version of the GNUmed server installs such a cron job by default.

EXAMPLES

anacron The following line could be added to a system's /etc/anacrontab to make sure it creates daily database backups for GNUmed: 1 15 gnumed-<your-company>-sign-backups /usr/bin/gm-zip+sign_backups.sh cron Add the following line to a crontab file to sign database backups at 12:47 and 19:47 every day: 47 12,19 * * * * /usr/bin/gm-zip+sign_backups.sh PROCMAIL It is useful to have a PROCMAIL rule for the digital notary server replies piping them into the stoarage area where the backups are kept.
