How do I restore my data?

Submitted by ehu on Mon, 05/13/2013 - 13:04

Assuming you have followed the How Do I Backup My Data instructions, you can restore your database as follows...

1) Restore the roles

$ psql -h [database host] -U [database admin user] < [roles backup file]

For example:

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

2) Create a new database to restore into

$ psql -h [database host] -U [database admin user] -c 'CREATE DATABASE [new company name]'

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.

There are 2 buttons:

  • 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.

Upgrade to LedgerSMB 1.6 (from 1.5 or 1.4/starman)

Upgrading tarball installations

There are two steps to upgrading a LedgerSMB 1.5.x to 1.6:

  1. Upgrade the software
  2. Upgrade the company database

The last step must be executed for each company database that's set up.

These steps also apply when upgrading a 1.4 installation running Starman. To upgrade 1.4 installations not running on Starman, or to upgrade from earlier versions, please see Upgrading to Ledgersmb 1.5. Note that the default configuration for 1.4 runs CGI, not Starman.
