Database backup is done by weekly like droplets or daily?


I want to know about when you are taking database backup. Whether database backup is done by weekly like droplets or daily?

If its weekly backup, is there any option to do daily?

Hi @webdeveloperwhale,

If you are talking about the Managed Database products, there are Free daily backups. Here is a paragraph from DigitalOcean about it - Your data is critical. That's why we ensure it's backed up automatically every day. Restore data to any point within the previous seven days.

Hope that helps!

Hello there,

Managed Databases Backups are handled automatically and included to you at no additional fee. Full backups are taken every day and write-ahead-logs are maintained to allow you to restore to any point in time during the retention period.

You can check our official Docs for the Managed PosfreSQL Database here:

And check the tutorial on how to restore a PostgreSQL cluster from Backups:
