sympl-backup: Pre/post backup scripts need updating
They do 3 things:
- Sync a copy of any existing backups from the backup space.
- Dump MySQL and Postgres(!?) databases, although not particularly well.
- Sync the result of the backups to the backup space once complete.
This uses the old deprecated Bytemark backup space, determining the destination server via the hostname of the local server, although this can be configured.
It's probably worth replacing the backup sync functionality with a couple of popular options and replacing the SQL dump script with something more modern which doesn't lock tables when dumping.
