Backup & Restore

Note  Backup & Restore is available only to users who belong to the fmesuperuser security role.

Use the Backup & Restore tools to perform the following:

  • Back up the configuration of a current instance of FME Server 2014 or later.
  • Restore a backed-up FME Server configuration to an instance of FME Server that is of the same or later version.
  • View your history of backup and restore activity.

For more information about backup and restore of FME Server configurations, see Upgrading FME Server.

FME Cloud Users: The tools on the Backup & Restore page of the Web User Interface do not allow you to perform a full restore of an FME Server instance, including FME Server data and the PostGIS database. To perform a backup and restore operation of an FME Cloud instance, launch a new instance from a backup snapshot using the tools on the FME Cloud Dashboard and the FME Cloud Snapshots page. For more information, see Working with Backups in the FME Cloud documentation.
