I'm using Ubuntu 10.04
But i need to restore the system, stuff isn't working right after the
so I need to backup my rails project.
Would a copy and paste onto a flashdrive work? What about all my
migrated database tables?
What is the best way to back up a rails project? Can i just copy and
paste everything? Would that save it? Thanks
That will save the sources, but it would be much better to have the
sources in a version control system such as git, then you just need to
backup the repository.
You also need to dump the contents of the database, which depends on
the db type.
After backing up make sure you can restore it and that it runs (and
tests pass) before erasing the originals.
