Restoring Database Backups

If you need to revert to an earlier version of your database, you can restore a database backup.

  1. Open the JSS Database Utility.

  2. Enter the username and password for an administrator account to the server, and click OK.

  3. If the JSS Database Utility is unable to locate the MySQL binary, you are prompted to enter the path. Click Continue and enter the location of the binary.

  4. If the Database Connection Setup pane appears, edit the settings to match your database configuration and click Apply Settings.

  5. Click Restore Backup Now.

  6. Select the backup that you want to restore (.sql or .sql.gz) and click Choose.

  7. When prompted to restart Tomcat, click Yes.

The JSS Database Utility restarts Tomcat and replaces the current database with the one that you restored.
