[solved] What files should go into the backup


#1

Hello,

my system is running very stable now and I want to keep it that way :smiley: So I was thinking on doing a backup of homegear. However, Iā€™m not quite sure, what files are essential needed. /etc/homegear for sure. But how about /var/lib/homegear/db.sql? Another post (https://forum.homegear.eu/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=252) mentioned this, but what is stored in this file?

Is something else needed? What information is stored within the LAN Gateway. What is lost if I have to use a new device?

db.sql is definitely a good idea. It stores all the device informations.
