Curator Backup

The Import / Export is a great way to backup your Curator data but sometimes a more complete backup is needed. The Full Backup will export an entire snapshop of all your Curator data (it's a full database and filesystem backup of the Curator webroot directory). Curator will even show you up-to-date stats on how much free space you have available on your server to ensure you have room.

Modifying the Full Backup Settings

  1. Login to the backend of your Curator instance (e.g. https://www.site.com/backend).
  2. Navigate to the Settings > Curator > Import/Export in the left navigation.
  3. Click on the "Full Backup" tab at the top.
  4. Click on the gear icon to display a popup. From here you can modify the location/frequency and retention options.

To Manually Create a new Curator Backup:

  1. Login to the backend of your Curator instance (e.g. https://www.site.com/backend).
  2. Navigate to the Settings > Curator > Import/Export in the left navigation.
  3. Click on the "Full Backup" tab at the top.
  4. Click the "Take New Backup" button to start a backup. If you would like to check the status of the backup while it is running, you can view the active status under the Settings > Curator > Queued Processes in the left navigation.

To Restore From a Full Backup:

  1. Login to the backend of your Curator instance (e.g. https://www.site.com/backend).
  2. Navigate to the Settings > Curator > Import/Export in the left navigation.
  3. Click on the "Full Backup" tab at the top.
  4. Find the backup from the list view (NOTE: They are all appended with a timestamp from when they were taken), and click the "back in time" icon to restore Curator to exactly mirror the time the backup was taken.
