    5 Backups are simply a copied snapshot of the entire [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory, including the database. Backups can be created using the `hotcopy` command in [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin].

    77'''Note''': Trac uses the `hotcopy` nomenclature to match that of [http://subversion.tigris.org/ Subversion], to make it easier to remember when managing both Trac and Subversion servers.
     
    99== Creating a Backup

    11 To create a backup of a live TracEnvironment simply run:
     11Create a backup of a live TracEnvironment by running:
    1212{{{#!sh
    1313$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv hotcopy /path/to/backupdir
    1414}}}
    1515
    16 [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] will lock the database while copying.
     16The database will be locked while hotcopy is running.
    1717
    1818The resulting backup directory is safe to handle using standard file-based backup tools like `tar` or `dump`/`restore`.
    1919
    20 Please note, the `hotcopy` command will not overwrite a target directory and when such exists, the operation ends with an error: `Command failed: [Errno 17] File exists:` This is discussed in [trac:ticket:3198 #3198].

     22== Restoring a Backup
    2323
    24 To restore an environment from a backup, stop the process running Trac, ie the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd], restore the contents of your backup (path/to/backupdir) to your [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory and restart the service.

     26If you are using a database other than SQLite, you'll need to restore the database from the dump file. The dump file is saved in the environment `db` directory.
    2527
    2628To restore a PostgreSQL database backup, use the command:
    2729{{{#!sh
    28 psql -U <user> -d <database> -f postgresql.dump
     30$ psql -U <user> -d <database> -f /path/to/postgresql.dump
    2931}}}
    30 The `<database>` option is the same as the [TracEnvironment#DatabaseConnectionStrings database connection string] in the `[trac]` `database` option of //trac.ini//.
     32
     33The `<database>` option is the same as the [TracEnvironment#DatabaseConnectionStrings database connection string] in the [TracIni#trac-database-option "[trac] database"] option of //trac.ini//.
     34
     35Similarly, for MySQL:
     36
     37{{{#!sh
     38$ mysql -u <user> -p <database> < /path/to/mysql.dump
     39}}}
