As of 1.3.7 the backup functionality moved to setup.pl, the database administration interface.

Login with your ledgersmb database user / admin user. This can't be done using your normal LedgerSMB login account since it doesn't have enough rights to backup db and roles. The default address for setup.pl is http://localhost/ledgersmb/setup.pl.

The LedgerSMB development team is happy to announce yet another new
version of its open source ERP and accounting application. This release
contains the following fixes and improvements:

  • Adding current directory explicitly to include path for Debian (Chris T and Erik H)

Please note that this release quickly follows a security update of the base
Debian Perl package, as the security release broke LedgerSMB's operation,
resulting in HTTP 500 (Internal server error) being thrown on every request.

In the 'setup.pl' administrative interface, there are 2 buttons:

  • Backup database
  • Backup roles

One creates a backup of the content of your database. The other creates a backup of the roles.

Roles are elements which are required to exist before creation of a database, and assign fine-grained access control.

When restoring, you need both files and you need to restore the roles before the database.
