To perform a manual or Ad-Hoc backup of the MySQL database:
- Login to RiskVision as a user with administration privileges
- From the Administration module, navigate to the Scheduled Jobs tab
- Select Daily Server and Database Hot Backup job and click Run button. The Daily Server and Database Hot Backup job will create a complete backup of the database and place it in the %Agiliance_Home%\backup directory.
This backup method can be used regardless of whether the database is located on the same server as the app server or a different server. The technical support team strongly recommends performing restoration testing of any changes in backup strategies prior to using these changes in production.
