    Quick backup on SolusVM - how to use?

    Does anybody know how the quick backup facility works? I can tell it to make a quick backup, but then what? There's zero documentation or help for this that I can find.

    Once I make a backup, presumably it's stored in the /panelbackup directory. How would I restore one of these backups?

    The quickbackup option is normally sent to a separate server to store backups. In your solusvm panel it should say "complete" in green letters. If you need to restore a backup, simply click the restore button in the quick backup interface. This will destroy your current os template and extract the backup.

    Turns out I was wrong - I'm on OpenVZ. Sorry for the confusion!

    Does that solution still apply?

    I've created a 'quick backup' (about 20 minutes ago), but nothing shows up in the 'quick backup' control panel.

    @PogiWeb: That is central backups.

    I believe you may have to ask your provider to restore the quick backups for you.

    Quick backup is saved under your VPS

    You should be able to find a compressed file in your file directory that contains the backup of your VPS data.

    The quick backup just creates and archive containing all of your VPS data and places that archive inside the VPS. You can then copy this archive elsewhere if you want, ot extract files from it, etc.

    Bump because I found this thread on Google and it doesn't have an answer....


    If you have the "Quick Backup" tab in your SolusVM panel, use it to create a compressed file containing all your VPS files, and you can find the file in /panelbackup. Mine was ~700MB and I was able to download it locally to my PC over FTP.

    To actually restore from it, you might have to ask your host to reload from the backup for you...
