  • Backing up Centos 7 Wordpress Server on Nutanix
    Posted: 11-21-2018, 1:12 PM

    Has any body been successful at backing a wordpress server running Centos7 on Nutanix AHV.

    I am unable to take a snapshot or run the scripts required. I am not even able to find the proper scripts for nutanix. All the references to the scripts are for VMware. I do have both the pre freeze/post thaw as well as quiesce and unqueisce but I am not able to get them to run. I also seem to have to put the shebang on the .py scripts provided by commvault just to get them to start withuout the import error

    My wordpress is running mariadb.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Gary,


    Are you using the MySQL/MariaDB agent here or a VM level crash consistent snap?


    Sounds like you are doing it from VMWare level but I don't believe we currently have AppAware for MariaDB yet, only Oracle, SQL, Sharepoint, Exchange and AD.



    Can you try installing the MySQL agent to the VM guest and try the backup from there?


    Thank you

    Right now I am doing a crash consistent snaphot. I am unable to get the pre-freeze,post-thaw, and scripts to run. I cannot get them to work on any of our centos 7 boxes. Some have MySQL and some have Mariadb. Not both on the same box. These are running on AHV.

    Spoke to commvault support today and they are unable to help with the scripts. I found the ones for VMware but they do not run. They error out and hang the servers.  I do know that Nutanix needs the pre-freeze and Post-thaw in the /usr/local/sbin not the /usr/sbin. The issue seems to be more related to the quiesce and unquisce.

    I can get the script to run if I modify it and change ending line from continue to pass and and rem out else and break. .But it does not actually quiesce the DB. just hangs the server. I have also tried stopping the DB before quiesce but no love there either

    There's a good chance you probably already went over these:

    Were you able to make any headway with your custom scripts?
