Django Database Backup

This Django application provides management commands to help backup and restore your project database and media files with various storages such as Amazon S3, DropBox or local file system.

It is made to:

  • Allow you to secure your backup with GPG signature and encryption
  • Archive with compression
  • Deal easily with remote archiving
  • Keep your development database up to date
  • Use Crontab or Celery to setup automated backups


Django DBBackup version 3 is very different to its predecessors. See Upgrade documentation to help to get up to date.



As we want to ensure a lot of platforms will be able to save data before upgrading, Django-DBBackup supports PyPy, 3.2 to 3.5 and Django greater than 2.2
