New to all of this, so please bear with me
Could someone please post a "Backup Basics" for the Open Source edition?
I found the zmbackup command in the manuals and have a few questions...
- What is the first step in backing up? Do I have to shut down any services? Will the services restart after the backup?
- Is there an indicator that the backup was successful?
- I notice the backups go to zimbra_home/backup directory. Is it OK to manually copy the contents of this directory to a network drive on another server? Will the next backup overwrite or will there be two backups in the zimbra_home/backup directory?
- Does the zmbackup command cover everything needed for a restore? Or do I have to do other backups for things such as MySql etc?
