Backing up your Database

Subscribe to Syndicate
There are a couple of key reasons to do an additional backup of your database.
  • In anticipation of doing a mass import or mass purge of data that cannot be undone except for a restore from a daily backup.
  • Doing a year-end backup or point-in-time image of the system, you must backup the database manually.


Saving a Database

It is not necessary to make a specific backup of the database prior to installing an update. Theatre Manager updates occur automatically, which also applies any database changes without intervention.
However, please ensure that backups are setup and running.

Backup Strategies

There is a good discussion of backup strategies and decent backup devices on the internet. Please read about why you should do backups and how often. We recommend upwards of 20 to 30 backup generations.
