Creating a Backup

You can use the Python script utils/backup.py to create a backup (SQL dump) of the SQL-Backend:

utils/backup.py -d folder/where/the/backup/is/created

You can do this while CaosDB is online.

Restoring a Backup

CaosDB should be offline for restoring.

You can use the Bash script utils/make_db to restore a backup (SQL dump) of the SQL-Backend:

make_db restore_db path/to/sql.dump
