Dump Heroku Postgres DB and load locally
Get the Heroku db as detailed here:
http://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/pgbackups#exporting_via_a_backup
1. heroku pg:backups:capture
2. heroku pg:backups:url <backup_num> #=>backup_url
- get backup_num with cmd "heroku pgbackups"
3. curl -o latest.dump <backup_url>
Then locally do:
$ pg_restore --verbose --clean --no-acl --no-owner -h localhost -U myuser -d mydb latest.dump
(your database must exist before can do this)
