Topic: Backup help needed
==== Provide required information ====
- iRedMail version:0.8.1
- Store mail accounts in which backend (MySQL): mysql
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: CentOS 5.5
I have two iredmail servers with 100% same configuration.
One server is running with daily emails incoming and outgoing.
Another server has only same configurations acting as backup but there is no emails in it.
I took backup of first server on weekly basis as.
#bash /root/Desktop/iRedMail-0.8.1/tools/backup_mysql.sh #cp -R /var/vmail /root/Desktop/vmail
DATABASES are mysql vmail policyd amavisd roundcubemail iredadmin
Once first server goes down, then only by coyping vmail folder with correct permissions (vmail:vmail) as
#chown -R vmail:vmail /var/vmail #chmod -R 0700 /var/vmail
is enough to run second server or i have to import all/some mysql databases into second server ?
I am using outlook and roundcube as email client.
