How do I backup a pgsql/PostgreSQL database?

Chris Burton

To get a list of all databases on PostgreSQL su to the postgres user:


su - postgres


Once you have switched to the postgres user simply issue the following command to backup the database.


pg_dump <database> > <databasebackup.sql>

You should now have a complete backup of the database content.
