Backup

Cherry is using SQLite, backup is fairly easy and straightforward. Just connect to database and use the .backup command. Below example backups the current database to a file called cherry_backup01.sqlite.

sqlite3 /data/cherry.sqlite ".backup '/data/cherry_backup01.sqlite'"

Since Cherry will run in a Docker container, the tricky part is usually: identifying where to place the backup file and fighting with directory/file permission.

A good practice is probably run this backup regularly (like every 1 hour) with a Cron Job, use datetime as part of the backup file name and then upload the backup file to an object storage bucket.
