One of the most important job for a system administrator is to back up data regularly. If the system crashes, the system administrator could restore it on time.

In Zdoo, configurations, modified codes, the database, and files will be backed up. 

1. Backup via one-click installation package

If you installed Zdoo using one-click installation packages, the easiest way to back up is to back up the whole directory of the installation package. Note: Stop Apache and MySQL service before you back up data in Zdoo, for complete data back up.

For Windows one-click installation package, back up the whole directory of /xampp and refer to  One-click Installation Package for Windows (Recommended).

For Linux  one-click installation package, back up /opt/zbox/data/mysql/zdoo and /opt/zbox/app/zdoo , and refer to  One-click Installation Package for Linux.

2. Back up manually

2.1 Back up configurations, modified codes and files 

Configurations are set in   zdoo/config/my.php 

Files are in the directory  zdoo/www/data/

Modified codes are in the directory / zdoo

Back up configurations, files and modified codes is to back up the whole directory of /zdoo.

2.2 Back up the database

2.2.1 Back up the original database files directly

Find the directory data in MySQL. For Windows, it is in the installation directory. For Linux, it is in /var/mysql or /var/db.

In the directory data, there is zdoo which stores the original database files. Copy this directory to back up. For Linux, be ware of permissions.

2.2.2 Export database backup

Use the tool built in MySQL, and export the database. Run  mysqldump -u xxx -p zdoo > zdoo.sql and change -u (user) to the actual username.

3. Backup feature in Zdoo-Admin and Cron (scheduled tasks)

Log in Zdoo as the super admin, and go to your Profile->Admin->System->Backup. 

Click Backup button at the upper right to back up and you will see the backup information as listed. Click Set on-hold days and you can set how long the backup will be saved.

Go to Admin->System->Cron, and turn on the auto backup. You can set the time and frequency to back up.
