uKnowva Backup

Backing up your uKnowva instance comprises 3 steps. They are outlined as follows:

Step 1: Backup Your Code

Your code is saved in the root folder of your WAMP, XAMPP, or LAMP. To take a backup of the code, zip all the files in that folder and save it in a secure location.

For example, if my instance is saved in “XAMPP/htdocs/uknowva_instance,” I will zip all the files and folders in uknowva_instance and save it in a different location.

Step 2: Backup Your Database

You can backup your database by 3 methods—with phpMyAdmin, HeidiSQL, or MySQL command line.

In uKnowva Configuration check the location where your uploaded documents are saved. Zip that folder and save in a secure location.

Backup file location

For example, in my instance, the folders are uploaded to “home/uknowva/docs.” I will zip docs and save it in a different location.
