Alfresco Community edition backup and restore in Windows 10

Hello,

We have installed Alfresco Community v5.2.0 using Windows .EXE installer in our Windows 10 system for our files and documents purpose. Everything is working fine.

It will be great help if you someone please let us know how we can take backup and restore in Windows 10 so that if any anything goes wrong in future so that we can restore our all data along with all user’s credentials and rules that we had setup currently.


Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.
Thanks,

Basically you can take backup of alf_data and db.

It will help you to start new alfresco.

You can create script that will periodically take backup and store at safe place.

Thanks & Regards,
Sanjay

Hello,

Restore production data

The dir.root directory is defined in the alfresco-global.properties file. By default, this directory is named alf_data and located within the directory where Content Services is installed.

  1. Restore the backup into the new repository.

    If Solr is being used, put the following directories from your backup to the dir.root directory on a new instance.

    • contentstore directory
    • solr/workspace directory (optional)
    • solr/archive directory (optional)
    • contentstore.deleted directory

    Some of the above mentioned directories are optional. This is because if the indexes are not copied over from the previous installation, Solr will query Content Services and rebuild its index in background after start up. It may take more time to rebuild indexes on large repositories. Applications will be accessible during the reindex process.

  2. Point the new deployment to the old database using the db.* properties in the alfresco-global.properties file by providing the JDBC URL, database name, log in credentials, and any other relevant configuration options.

    Remember to specify the relevant JDBC driver into your application server’s classpath.

Tip: check the official documentation (at least to clarify some ideas, it can be helpful!)

Cheers!
