Cloud Admin can use the API in order to create a backup of the cloud server.
The API backup doesn't stop the server.
To Restore from Backup - Restore SeeTestCloud Server From Backup
Use the following POST url: /api/v1/backups/new
Use the noApps parameter and set it to true if you want to skip backing up the appData.zip file. (the default value is false; appData will be saved by default)
curl command will look like this:
curl -X POST -u <user>:<password> <server_address>/api/v1/backups/new -F noApps=true
The Backup directory will be created in the path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Experitest\Cloud\Server\cloudBackups
The folder name will be a time stamp such as "2016-02-29-10-16-34"
This path can be configured in the cloudserver.conf file with <cloud-backup-base-dir> flag.
In this folder, there will be five archives: appData, conf, db, logs, and scripts.
There will also be one README.txt file that will instruct you how to restore the server using these archives.
