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.

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

Note that all the steps below are prefixed with the 'sudo' command, but these can be executed as 'root' directly as well.
