Backup and restore#
All data and configuration is kept in the
data directory. Backup this directory:
rsync -avzP my.server.com:/var/www/shaarli.mydomain.org/data ~/backups/shaarli-data-$(date +%Y-%m-%d_%H%M)
It is strongly recommended to do periodic, automatic backups to a separate machine. You can automate the command above using a cron job or full-featured backup solutions such as rsnapshot
To restore a backup, simply put back the
data/ directory in place, overwriting any existing files.
