Default Backup / Restore

I have tried to look for how to restore the backups. There seems to be only the backup manager but no restore manager.

Is there a was to easily restore those backups?
What kind of backup systems are you using your self?
Any experience in restoring those backups?

There is no special function to restore them in the interface, just unzip the backup file and upload it with FTP.

What experince do you expect? The backup contains all files of the site, as long as they have been readable by the admispconfig user.

Actually I was thinking about the ISPConfig system backups.
How do you take backups of the ISP Manager? Hostingplans? etc.
And how do restore them?
On Tools there is an Data Export option.
How can I restore Reseller & Client Data?

Any insight on these questions would help a lot. thx

Just create backups of the /root/ispconfig and /home/admispconfig directories, e.g. with the tar command. To back up and restore the ISPConfig database, take a look here:

Thx, those paths are just what I was looking for.

Sam

PS. These paths should be added to the Administrators help document.

No. As far as I know, nobody is working on this currently.

One point, don't forget to backup the DB, which is stored in MySQL. It's great to have all the files back, but a missing DB will ruin your day... Frankly, I just include that in my tar statement
Code:
[~]# tar zxvf cpbackup.tar.gz /home/admispconfig/ /root/ispconfig/ /var/lib/mysql/db_ispconfig
Actually, I do my own script that also ftps it to another server and renames it with the date. But that is a little more involved.
