Backing Up Qlicksoft CMS

Qlicksoft CMS is file based and does not use a database. To backup, we use tar.

Archive Backup

Backing up Qlicksoft CMS is easy. Because we only use files and no database, you can just TAR and compress the virtual host directory.


cd /var/www/yourVirtualHost
tar -cvzf mybackup.tar.gz .

c - creates an archive named mybackup
f - specify filename of archive
v - verbose output for informational purposes
z - compresses the archive with Gzip compression

Archive Extraction

Extracting a backed up archive in tar.gz format is easy.


tar -xvzf mybackup.tar.gz

f - specify filename of archive
v - verbose output for information purposes
x - extract directories and files from specified archive filename
z - Gzip decompress
