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]'

For example:

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.

Does LedgerSMB support "sub-accounts"?

Submitted by ehu on Thu, 07/30/2020 - 09:50

Yes. LedgerSMB has a mechanism called "Account headings". The headings are the opposite of what Intuit explains about Quickbooks for their subaccount support: Quickbooks splits an account into multiple and aggregates those new accounts into the old one for reporting. To achieve the same in LedgerSMB, you create multiple accounts and one or more headings. LedgerSMB then aggregates the totals of the accounts per heading. The system used by LedgerSMB closely resembles what MYOB describes about their accounts and headers.

Upgrade to LedgerSMB 1.8

Submitted by ehu on Mon, 07/27/2020 - 23:11

This is Draft content, written for functionality that is in development and may not yet be released.

Overview

Company database upgrades are supported all the way back from 1.4 directly to 1.8, using the 1.8 software. Company database upgrades from 1.3 and 1.2 are also supported, but due to the different nature of the upgrade process are called "migrations". The important difference being that when doing a migration, a copy of the data is being created in the 1.8 structure, while upgrades adjust the existing structure for 1.8.

Installing latest LedgerSMB using Docker Compose

Submitted by ehu on Sat, 06/20/2020 - 04:48

By far the fastest procedure for installing LedgerSMB is by using the published Docker images: Being an ERP, there are many dependencies to be installed and all of them are included in the images, with the exception of the required PostgreSQL database. There are two ways to provide the PostgreSQL functionality: by setting up a separate PostgreSQL server or by using a PostgreSQL-providing Docker container.
