|Backing Up and Restoring Faspex|
Aspera strongly recommends backing up your IBM Aspera Faspex configuration and database as a precaution in case of system failure. You may also want to restore your Faspex configuration folder and database on a new machine where you've installed Faspex. To learn more about restoring Faspex, see Restoring your Faspex Database.
Click the Download button to save your current Faspex configuration folder and database in the format *.tar.gz. From this screen, you may also restore your Faspex configuration folder and database on a new machine by uploading the backup file and selecting the Restore button. Then, follow the steps in the topic Restoring your Faspex Database to finish restoring Faspex on a new machine.
The preceding asctl command uses mysqldump to backup Faspex's three MySQL databases to the following directory:
/opt/aspera/faspex/backup/time_stamp-version_number.revision_numberFor example, the directory name may be 2016-04-15_140547-Faspex.126.96.36.199400.
Verify that the faspex.sql file is present in the directory. You can use this file to restore your MySQL database to a new Faspex instance.
Aspera also recommends that you back up your Faspex, Apache and MySQL application files, which, in addition to the database backup, yields a full backup of the applications required to run Faspex. You can find the application files in the following directories:
