     1= Trac Backup = 
     2Since Trac uses a database backend, it requires some extra care to safely create a backup of a TracEnvironment. Luckily, TracAdmin has a command to make backups easier - '''hotcopy'''. 
     3 
     4'''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.

     6== Creating a Backup == 
     7To create a backup of a live TracEnvironment, simply run: 
     8{{{ 
     9  $ trac-admin /some/where/mytracenv hotcopy /my/vault/mytracenv-backup 
     10}}} 
     11 
     12'''Note:''' TracAdmin will lock the database while copying. 
     13 
     14The resulting backup copy is safe to handle using standard file-based backup tools like tar or dump/restore.

     17=== Restoring a Backup === 
     18Backups are simply a copied snapshot of the entire TracEnvironment directory structure, including the SQLite database.  
     19 
     20To restore an environment from a backup, simply shut down your Trac service (Web server or tracd), restore the directory structure from backup and restart the service.
