For example:

$ psql -h localhost -U lsmb_dbadmin < lsmb-roles.sqlc

Log in to the the 'setup.pl' administrative interface, using your ledgersmb database admin user (usually "lsmb_dbadmin" or "postgres"). The default address for setup.pl is http://localhost/ledgersmb/setup.pl.

  • Backup database (parts, customers, accounting records, etc)
  • Backup roles (your login accounts and rights)

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