Tip : Take backup of postgresql database from command prompt - Postgeres of jasperserver installed in Cent OS 6.5 final

Hi Guys,

Below steps will be followed for taking back up of a database from command line for postgresql database.

1) Go to installation folder of postgres (postgres installed with jasper server).

2) Go up to the bin folder & and open the location with terminal with su(superuser) credentials.
 (You can find file names like pg_dump, pg_dumpall and etc)

3)Execute below command for taking backup of particular database.

Let us assume student is the database we would want to take back up.
& the output .sql script file name is : student.sql( can give anyname).

[root@localhost bin]# ./pg_dump -U postgres -W -F p student >  /home/sadha/student.sql

In the above command:

U = UserName
W=Prompt for password once you press enter
F=File Format
p=plain .sql file
t=tar file
