This article provides step-by-step instructions for creating a backup for an on-premise instance.
- Make sure that you configured
mpctlto be globally available (see Installing Meisterplan).
- Connect to the Meisterplan server and open a shell.
mpctl backup. This will create a backup in the Meisterplan installation directory under
data/backups/using the current timestamp as a filename. Alternatively, you can specify the target path on your own via
mpctl backup <target-file-path>.
We recommend that you create backups on a daily basis. You can use a cronjob to set this up.
Please note: You can only restore a backup with the Meisterplan version from which the backup was created.
