🛈 This script can not be used on its own but requires the base installation. See main README for details.
This script uploads binary backup (
/ system backup save) and complete
configuration export (
/ export terse) to external server.
Just install the script:
The configuration goes to
global-config-overlay, these are the parameters:
BackupSendBinary: whether to send binary backup
BackupSendExport: whether to send configuration export
BackupPassword: password to encrypt the backup with
BackupRandomDelay: delay up to amount of seconds when run from scheduler
BackupUploadUrl: url to upload to
BackupUploadUser: username for server authentication
BackupUploadPass: password for server authentication
Also notification settings are required for e-mail, matrix and/or telegram.
The RouterOS SFTP client is picky if it comes to authentication methods.
I had to disable all but password authentication on server side. For openssh
/etc/ssh/sshd_config and add a directive like this, changed for your
Match User mikrotik AuthenticationMethods password
Just run the script:
/ system script run upload-backup;
Creating a scheduler may be an option:
/ system scheduler add interval=1w name=upload-backup on-event="/ system script run upload-backup;" start-time=09:25:00;
