Backup of the database[edit | edit source]
To back up your database, use the native program "mysqldump" of MySQL/MariaDB: Open a console, switch to the directory
<installpath-bluespice> and backup your database with the following command:
mysqldump -u <username> -p --lock-tables <datenbank> > database.sql
<username> , use the administrative database user (usually "root"), and for
<datenbank> , use the database of your MediaWiki/BlueSpice installation.
Backup of the file system[edit | edit source]
Back up the complete directory
<installpath-bluespice>, which now also includes the database image, to a different location on your server.
For security reasons, immediately delete the file
<installpath-bluespice>/database.sql, since it can be accessed from the browser.
