The Offsite Backup Server automatically backs up its configuration to your configured backup locations. This allows you to restore the configuration to another machine in case of a disaster or if you need to migrate it to another machine. The configuration is saved in the 'ConfigBackup' folder in the configured backup location.
If your Offsite Backup Server is connected to the Control Panel (CP) it is recommended that you backup your CP Connection Details in order to avoid having to reconfigure or reseed backup data.
These details are not backed up automatically as it required a specific Password in order to encrypt this information.
In order to set up this password, follow the instructions below:
- Open your Offsite Backup Server Management Console
- Click on your machine name on the top right-hand corner, this will bring up the [Offsite Backup Server Configuration Backup] option. This option will only show up if your Offsite Backup Server is already connected to the CP.
- Enter a secure password and then click on [Set Password]
You will require this key when you are migrating to a different machine, so it's critical that you either remember it or take note of it in a secure password manager as there is no method of recovery for this password.
