Backup / Restore

As the data is stored in a database (except the pictures), a manual backup procedure of the database is necessary. The manual backup process generates a dump file of the database as well as the picture folder. With the manual restore process, it is possible to restore the database as well as the pictures. The backup-data-file has to be stored at a safe place.

Warning

Physical backup of the database is not a proper way to save data produced with visionCATS and will lead to data loss if a restore would be needed! CAMAG strongly recommends performing regular backups.
