Restore from System Backup

To restore a backup:

1. Download the backup file from FTP server to master server and extract the zip file.

2. It will have two files: database_name.gz and solusvm.conf

3. Extract the database file:

gunzip database_name.gz
Replace database_name with the actual name. Also, you can fetch the required information about database connection manually from /usr/local/solusvm/includes/solusvm.conf file, see  About solusvm.conf file on Master Node

4. Restore database using the command below as an example:

MYSQL_PWD=\$(cat /usr/local/solusvm/includes/solusvm.conf \
| awk -F ":" '{print \$3}') mysql \$(cat /usr/local/solusvm/includes/solusvm.conf \
| awk -F ":" '{print \$1}') -u\$(cat /usr/local/solusvm/includes/solusvm.conf \
| awk -F ":" '{print \$2}') < database_name
