Backup

Backing up the RMM

Note

This is only applicable for the standard install, not Docker installs.

A backup script is provided for quick and easy way to backup all settings into one file to move to another server.

Download and run the backup script:

wget -N https://raw.githubusercontent.com/amidaware/tacticalrmm/master/backup.sh
chmod +x backup.sh
./backup.sh

The backup tar file will be saved in /rmmbackups with the following format:

rmm-backup-CURRENTDATETIME.tar

Schedule to run Daily via Cron

Make a symlink in /etc/cron.d (daily cron jobs) with these contents 00 18 * * * tactical /rmm/backup.sh to run at 6pm daily.

echo -e "\n" >> /rmm/backup.sh
sudo ln -s /rmm/backup.sh /etc/cron.daily/

Warning

Currently the backup script doesn't have any pruning functions so the folder will grow forever without periodic cleanup. Or just become awesome
