set definition files are no longer essential to the operation of
WeBWorK 2 courses, you don't need to back them up. However, you do need
to back up the course database, regardless of whether it is stored in
the DATA directory or in an SQL database. (See http://webhost.math.rochester.edu/webworkdocs/discuss/msgReader$2600#2612 for more information.)
An easy way to back up the course database is with the Course
Administration database export tool. If you need to automate things,
use the wwdb command-line utility. it is self-documented -- just take a
look at the top of the webwork2/bin/wwdb file.
Here are the things I can think of that need to be backed up:
- The course database
- The DATA directory, which may contain database files
- The course.conf file, if it exists
- Any set definition files for sets that are not represented in the course database.
- Any mail merge files (directory templates/email).
- The scoring directory.
