Database Backup (PostgreSQL)

Data stored in PAM360 is of critical importance. In any production environment, there would be constant requirements for backing up the data, either for reference purposes or disaster recovery. To achieve this, PAM360 provides the Database Backup feature.

The rest of the document allows you to understand two types of Database Backup in detail:

  1. Scheduled Backup
  2. Instant Backup

1. Scheduled Backup

This type of backup allows you to schedule the database backup to be executed at any specific point of time.

Steps to Schedule a Database Backup:

    1. Navigate to Admin >> Configuration >> Database Backup.

    2. In the pop-up window that appears, select the schedule option - day, weekly or monthly.
    3. Select the time frequency (dd:hh:mm) at which the backup has to occur.
    4. The Destination Directory field shows the default directory path: <PAM360_Home>/backUp. You can change the path, if required.
    5. Every time backup is executed according to schedule, one backup file will be created. Specify the maximum number of latest backup files to be stored in the directory. For example, if you choose "10" from the drop-down Maintain latest, only the latest 10 backup files will be stored in the directory.
    6. Click Save. The required backup schedule is created.

2. Instant Backup

This type of backup allows you to execute a Database Backup instantly.

  1. Navigate to Admin >> Configuration >> Database Backup.
  2. Click Backup Now.
Now, your database has been backed up successfuly.
