in reply to conditional backup in postgres

I work a lot in postgres and I find pg_dump to be a useful command, since I can call it in a cronjob.

I don't think it accepts the Where clause.

An alternative would be to run a command like this:

psql mydb -c "select * from C_order where period=2009 and org<>'A'"
And then you'll have output you could save. Look up the psql command's options, it will probably let you make the output more useful for your backup policy.

[Corion]: I think I'll have to manually (as god) intervene with that node, as the simple reparenting didn't seem to fix the parent/child relationship of the nodes
[Corion]: I think I have an idea but I'll have to open a ticket with on that - hopefully I get to that on the weekend

[Mr. Muskrat]: Thank you!
[Mr. Muskrat]: Oh that is odd. I got the message that it was reparented but yeah, it didn't actually do it. lol
[Corion]: LanX: No, Co-Rion appears as Monkey God :-)
[Corion]: Mr. Muskrat: Yeah, that message is automatic when the "normal" reparenting is done, but I think some rows that make up the node were not added to the DB properly
