Backing Up the PureCM Database

If you are using SQL Server then you need to backup the SQL Server database.

If you are using SQLite then you need to backup the PureCM directory (typically C:\PureCM). This can be backed up using a backup program such as NTBackup on Windows or 'tar' on Unix.

If the server is running, you must run the 'pcm begin-backup' command before taking a copy of the directory and 'pcm end-backup' when finished from the command line. This will ensure a consistent backup is taken. This is described in this knowledgebase article.
