Dolphin Backup and Restore
How to Create a Backup for Dolphin and How to Restore from it
In order to backup your Dolphin web site you have to:
Step 1: Backup all your web site files.
Backup all the files and folders inside your Dolphin root directory. You can do that by downloading them via your favourite FTP client. You can find detailed instructions in our comprehensive
FTP tutorial. Step 2: Backup/Export your database
Next, you have to export your Dolphin database. You can do that by using
PHPMyAdmin. Please, check our tutorial on how to backup/restore MySQL database in order to create a backup of your Dolphin database. Please, make sure that you choose the correct database, which your Dolphin application uses.
If you are unsure about the Dolphin database name, you will be able to find it in the
dolphin_folder/inc/header.inc.php file. You can view this file through cPanel -> File manager.
Alternatively, you can backup and restore the Dolphin database directly through the
Dolphin admin area->Tools->Database Backup.
You can create backups of tables or of the whole database. You can store them on the server, on your local computer or just display the MySQL queries code.
The dump files stored on the server can be restored directly from it. If you decide to keep the dump files on your local computer, you have to upload the files through the corresponding functionality.
