Server side Backups

Sometimes it is required to create a database backup on the server, without downloading it. It is normally useful before performing a database operation that might require the database to be restored to it’s previous state. You can backup your database by using the backup dialog, which can be opened from the application menu.

The backup files are stored on the server at that path defined in configuration. If the path is not writable or you do not have permissions, you will be informed when you open the backup dialog. Once the permissions/write access is allowed, the backups can be performed as usual.

The file names generated by backup can be customized by editing the ‘backup.php’ configuration file in MyWebSQL configuration folder.
