pgDump TAR format

Post by ccampbell » Fri 26 May 2017 13:56

Hello, how do I set the pgDump/pgRestore object(s) to backup to a TAR format. Currently it backs up using plain text.

Thank you.

Chris.

PgSqlDump backs up data to an SQL script. When PgSqlDump restores data it executes SQL scripts. Thus, PgSqlDump is not designed for backing up data to the TAR format.
