With the use of this tool, backups can be done directly from a web page and also, backups can be restored from a web page using the same tool.
This tool can be really useful if you are planning a mass update of Splynx settings and you are afraid of making any errors - simply make a backup and start applying changes. In case of any failures, you can easily restore the previous state of Splynx.
To make a backup, click on
Create or, if you already have a backup (previously done using this tool), it can be uploaded by clicking on
To create a backup, in step 1 selected items which will be included in the backup should be selected:
Database critical - will be included automatically, contains all main info of Splynx (config, finances, services, networking, customers etc);
Database full - entire database with structure of tables, critical info and customer's statistics and logs;
RRD - statistic graphs (ping, customer statistic graphs etc);
Addons and handlers - addons folder + folder with handlers (voice, finance etc);
Template - all templates;
Public uploads - images and code that were uploaded into Splynx and are available without logging in;
System uploads - files that were uploaded into Splynx and are intended for the internal use;
In step 2, create a password for this backup, confirm it and in step 3 click on
Once backup is ready there are 3 actions: restore, download and delete:
To download the backup click on the "Download" button in the Actions column and provide the backup password:
To restore a backup click on "Restore" in the Actions column.
Here you have to provide the backup password + the admin password:
Then you will have to confirm the restore once more by providing the backup + admin passwords:
Then you will see the process of the restoration:
During the restore process an error can occur on the current tab - in this case just re-login to the Splynx web page.
After a backup restore, we will have a Splynx state with no backup (as it was before making the first backup).
Do not store tons of unnecessary and old backups, simply for the purpose of saving disk space.
