How to Restore UrBackup Database Ubuntu


I suffered a system disk crash on my Ubuntu 16.04 server, and I’ve rebuilt it on Ubuntu 18.04. The backup repositories on a RAID array were unaffected by the disk crash, and the <backup-repository/urbackup folder is intact,

I’ve reinstalled UrBackup server 2.2.11 and all it’s dependencies. I’ve stopped the service for the moment as I had to chown -R the repository sub-directories.

Is restoring the database simply a matter of copying the files from the urbackup folder to /var/urbackup and restarting the server?


OK, tried it, worked. Apologies for wasted bandwidth.


Hi dagdog,

Good to know this! If the time comes… :grin:
