Using the Backup button
The Backup button on Maintenance screen is the easiest way to backup Saleculator database. You can do a full backup or partial backup depending on the purpose. Doing a full backup might take several minutes depending on the volume of data. A partial backup is used when you want to backup only selected tables. You can choose the tables for partial backup in SQL.BackupTables resource.
When software is not available, use below method to backup database.
1. Connect a flash drive
2. Go to shell by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1
3. Issue below commands
# mount /dev/sdb1 /flash (If sdb1 doesn't work try sda or sda1) # mysqldump -u root -p SALECULATOR > /flash/databackup.sql (enter password) # umount /flash
Unplug the flash drive and confirm the backup by checking it on a Windows system.
