Performing backups of server configuration data
|Top Previous Next|
It is recommended that you perform a regularly scheduled backup of your MFT Server configuration and user files. This may be performed using the System Configuration Backup action as part of a trigger.
To perform a manual backup of MFT Server create a ZIP archive of the MFT Server installation directory. This archive may be used for disaster recovery purposes.
Restoring from an automatic backup
To restore from an automatic backup, just unzip the contents of the .zip archive generated by the 'System Configuration Backup' trigger action into a freshly installed MFT Server (having the same version as the backup up). You may even unzip the backup over an existing installation that is not working properly. Once the existing files get replaced with the backup files, that installation will then acquire the configurations of the backup.
