Database Auto-Backup

A tool for all your back-ups, internal and external!


Before installing this module, you need to execute:

pip install pysftp


Go to Settings -> Configuration -> Configure Backup to create your configurations for each database that you needed to backups.


Keep your Odoo data safe with this module. Take automated back-ups, remove them automatically and even write them to an external server through an encrypted tunnel. You can even specify how long local backups and external backups should be kept, automatically!

Connect with an FTP Server

Keep your data safe, through an SSH tunnel!

Want to go even further and write your backups to an external server? You can with this module! Specify the credentials to the server, specify a path and everything will be backed up automatically. This is done through an SSH (encrypted) tunnel, thanks to pysftp, so your data is safe!

Test connection

Checks your credentials in one click

Want to make sure if the connection details are correct and if Odoo can automatically write them to the remote server? Simply click on the ‘Test SFTP Connection’ button and you will get message telling you if everything is OK, or what is wrong!

E-mail on backup failure

Stay informed of problems, automatically!

Do you want to know if the database backup succeeded or failed? Subscribe to the corresponding backup setting notification type.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • On larger databases, it is possible that backups will die due to Odoo server settings. In order to circumvent this without frivolously changing settings, you need to run the backup from outside of the main Odoo instance. How to do this is outlined in this blog post.
