Duplication to External Server

P: n/a
I'm setting up 2 database servers. The first is on our local network which
is our staging server. The second is an external server setup at my hosting
company. On a nightly bases I want to copy all the data from the local
Postgre database to the production server at hosting company overriding
whatever was there previously.

Does anyone have any suggestions on an easy was to do this ?

You should check out some of the replication software on gborg.postgresql.org
but off the top of my head I would say that if you truely want to copy the data
up to the server you can use the psql program over an SSL connection. I'm not
quite sure if psql supports SSL natively but you can always tunnel the
connection with ssh if your ISP supports it. If you are using 7.4 you could
even use pg_dump with ssh in a similar manner.

For this particular case, I'd be tempted to pg_dump the local database, use
rsync over ssh to update that dump onto the hosted server, then pg_restore.

If you could stop the local copy of PG, in theory you could just move the
whole data directory, but I'd feel uncomfortable about that.
