I do not approve or disapprove of your choice of Postgres over MySQL.
To best of my knowledge, Postgres does not have media (or point in
time) recovery, at all.
The only thing possible is a consistent backup, resulting in a SQL
dump. No clues how
long it will take to restore it.
What is the plan to get around without it for critical databases?
Thanks and regards
PS. It is my first post to this list and to any list. I replied to
the sender and CC'ed the list.
I apologize if that was wrong. If so, there are valid reasons to refer
me to the list doco,
but I lost it :-).
