Restoring the Console Database

You can restore any back up of a Console database as long as you have access to the backup file.
  1. Stop Console.
    $ asctl console:stop
  2. Restore the Console database.
    • If you made a back up of the Console database with the asctl command, you can restore it with the following command:
      $ asctl -v console:restore_database /path/to/dir
      For example:
      $ asctl -v console:restore_database /opt/aspera/console/backup/2013-1-16_164305
    • If you made a back up of the Console database with the web UI, you can restore it with the following command:
      $ asctl -v console:restore /absolute/path/to/dir
      For example:
      $ asctl -v console:restore /tmp/console_full_backup_2013-1-16_00.57.28_UTC
      Important: The restore command does not support relative paths to the backup directory. The path must be an absolute path in order for the restore command to work.
  3. Start Console.
    $ asctl console:start
