Alfresco Community Edition v5.1.e Backup and Restore

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to best backup alfresco CE 5.1. I've done a very basic install using the in box postgresql database, and have a couple sites.

Essentially I need to figure out how to back this up, and restore it to a new server if the need comes up

I've been following this:

Just downloaded and installed Alfresco Community on Windows Server 2012 but can't access it from any other client on the network. During setup I bound it to the local IP and not localhost. Should I have done this differently or is the access IP locked by default? If locked where do I unlock it.

I've searched the docs and the internet honest.

But this doesn't seem 100% accurate to my version

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Alfresco stores the information in three different places:

* Database (postgres)

* Content Stores (alf_data/contentstore and alf_data/contentstore.deleted)

* Indexes (alf_data/solr4)

You can perform a backup of the folders and a dump of the database.

When restoring, just replace the folders with the backup and perform an import of the database.
