Good evening.

As the title says:
Is there a way to protect the PPM databases or at least
have a back-up generated automatically?


An hour ago, the power went out because of a thunderstorm, while I was
installing a dependency, and I lost the database of applications installed by
the user. All I have now in < user-installed-packages > is:
Quote:
Binary file /root/.packages/user-installed-packages matches
and a couple of lines of blank space.

I won't be grieving the file. I'll consider it lost unless someone explains to
me how to reconstitute it -- but the question stands: it would be
useful in cases such as these to have an automatically generated back-up.
The last entry would be lost but not the entire file.

TIA for any suggestions.

Best regards.
