To start a backup, run

python scbackup

To restore a backup and erase all your data, you can run

python screstore
python migrate

This will restore the latest backup. To choose another backup, indicate a backup filename as first argument. To get list of available backup, use

python listbackups

You can not restore a backup to a scirius which is older than the one where the backup has been done.

With default configuration file, the backup is done on disk in /var/backups but other methods are available. As Scirius CE is using django-dbbackup application for backup and restore procedures, it benefits from all available methods in this application. This includes at least:

  • FTP
  • Amazon AWS
  • Dropbox

Please see django-dbbackup configuration for more information on available methods and on their configuration.
