Too Long; Didn't Read
This manual describes the process of setting up continuous backups for Postgres databases. It is implied that the reader may have very little knowledge of both Postgres backups and working with Linux (and in particular with its command-line tools), so the tutorial is written in as much detail as possible. In the event of a failure, the database should be restored to the same major version of Postgres that was used for the backup. The model described above can also be used for backup with subsequent recovery (for example) on another server.
