Backing Up RapidMiner Server

Backing up the RapidMiner Server operations database is an important task to avoid potential time-consuming troubleshooting. For example, if an error occurs during the upgrade or rollback process, you will want full operations database backups to recover your previous working environment. It is strongly recommended that, as a precaution, you back up both before you upgrade your server and at regular intervals.

Because the operations database platform is flexible (for example, MySQL, PostgreSQL or others), providing the commands for backup in this document is not practical. Typically, googling the database name with "backup" or "database dumps" will provide the necessary syntax.

If you are not comfortable with command line interfaces, consider a tool like MySQL Workbench for the creation of a MySQL-based operations database. The tool also includes a simple interface for backup and restore.
