PostgreSQL Local (pglocal)¶
The PostgreSQL Local engine allows you to create snapshots of your PostgreSQL databases running in Docker containers.
The PostgreSQL Local engine has been tested with Postgres.app and should be compatible with any recent version of PostgreSQL installed on a host machine ( >= PostgreSQL 9.2 ) that includes
psql in the path.
Specifying the PostgreSQL Local Engine¶
To use the PostgreSQL Local engine to create or load a database snapshot, use the
pglocal:// scheme for the source or destination target url as needed. For example:
pglocal://username:password@host/database?sslmode=[require | disable]
pglocal scheme is abbreviated as
pgl in the CLI and DBSnapper cloud
