 +====== Create and Restore Database Backups ======
 +===== How do I create a database backup? =====
 +A backup of a database can be created using different tools. Many tools that can be used to access the database [[http://www.phpmyadmin.net|phpMyAdmin]] or [[http://www.mysql.de/products/workbench|MySQL-Workbench]] also offer possibilities to backup the database or individual tables. In addition to these tools your website hosters usually should also create regular backups of the database every day ideally.
 +In addition to the methods just mentioned, we have in Admidio another way to quickly and easily create a backup of the database. Just before an update of Admidio it is advisable to create such a backup.
 +  - For this purpose, you log in as a webmaster in your Admidio-installation.
 +  - Now choose the menu item **Database Backup**. 
 +  - Here you click on the button **Create Backup** 
 +  - Now a backup of all Admidio tables and data in the database is applied.\\ {{:de:2.0:documentation:backup:backup_erstellen.png?400|Create Backup}} 
 +  - The created file is stored as zipped file under **adm_my_files / backup**. On request they can also be downloaded as an additional safeguard and stored locally on the computer.
 +Now, all data (user data, role permissions, role memberships, guestbook messages, etc.) from Admidio are secured. Photos, downloads and backups are not affected by this assurance. These you should additionally back up with your FTP program by loading the folder **adm_my_files** on your computer! The Admidio program files must be backed up when you have made there own customizations. All program files older Admidio versions can be downloaded from [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/admidio/files/Admidio/|Sourceforge]].
 +===== How do I set a database backup restore ? =====
 +If you want to import the database on another server, or something went wrong with an Admidio update, or data is lost by an error, a backup needs to be restored. The method described here refers to the restore from a backup that was created with Admidio. But it will also work with all other backups, providing a pure SQL file as backup.
 +  - Get your last backup file from your current Admidio installation. This can be downloaded after logging in as Webmasters, via the menu item **Database Backup**:\\ {{:de:2.0:documentation:backup:backup_herunterladen.png?400|Download Backup}}
 +  - Alternatively, the file can be downloaded via FTP from the Admidio folder **adm_my_files/backup**.
 +  - The file is packed and must be decompressed with a corresponding [[http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gzip|GZip-Program]]. 
 +  - Next, you should now delete all existing Admidio tables in the database with an appropriate program (in this documentation [[http://www.phpmyadmin.net|phpMyAdmin]]). For this you mark the appropriate tables and choose  entry **Delete**.\\ {{:de:2.0:documentation:backup:tabellen_loeschen.png?400|Clear Tables}}
 +  - Step 4 you have possibly frequently to repeat because of dependencies among the tables, all tables can not be deleted at once.
 +  - Then you choose menu **Import**.
 +  - There, you show to the unpacked backup file and start the Import.\\ {{:de:2.0:documentation:backup:backup_importieren.png?400|Import Backup}}
 +  - Now, all data should be restored back to the state of the backup.
