I'm looking to use HgLab for Mercurial server. It's looking a good tool. I'm trying to find out how to take backup of projects and repositories so that committed code can be recovered and ported over to other servers if required. Please suggest on this.

    Currently, HgLab has no built-in feature for backing itself up. I'm
    planning on adding support for backups to S3 or any other location for the
    upcoming versions.

    To perform a backup, you'll need to first back up HgLab database (that's
    done using standard SQL Server tools; ).
    Next, you'll have to stop the HgLab web application to ensure that nobody's
    running any write operations to the repositories and either back up each
    repository separately ( ) or just
    back up the entire Home Directory.
