How do I restore my data?

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

Note that the following examples use the  'lsmb_dbadmin' for the database administrative user. Recent LedgerSMB installs do not automatically create an 'lsmb_dbadmin' user.  This has to be created manually.  You may have to use the 'postgres' user depending on how your database was installed.

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

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.
