Apache and Tomcat backup on linux

Veeam Logoby braddock » Wed Jul 19, 2017 7:17 pm

Hi,

We have a red hat linux server running apache and tomcat. The database server is elsewhere and we use pre-freeze and thaw scripts on that when we take backups.

Regarding apache and tomcat specifically, does a Veeam backup need scripts for these ? As far as I'm aware they are non-transactional.

Thanks.

Hello,

Apache is a webserver and tomcat an application/webserver. They normally don't write anything but logs. If your java code running on tomcat writes something to disk and not only to database then you have to perhaps do something about it but normally thats what journalling filesystems are for....
