Backup is the most import database activity. At least, once a month a backup should be performed by Settings > Backup of databases > Backup of all databases > Continue:
If data are entered or changed, backup has to be performed even daily. Backup of the data are copied to files (SQL) with a date and time stamp, e.g. Backup_..._2015-01-03-1302.sql. These files can be used for transfer to other LUPMIS installations or in case of re-generating the database (see below).
Technical Note: Backup of Permit, Census, Address, TCPD databases are stored in folder Backup of Permits folder, while the Revenue Database backup is saved in folder Backup of Rev folder.
Before you do any restore, make first a backup of whatever you have, in case of a crash. You can restore from a SQL file through Settings > Backup of databases > Restore .... Database > Continue >
> Select file > Execute.
