This tutorial is a follow-up of the tutorial Setup of Uptime Kuma Standalone on Ubuntu with a Reverse Proxy.
This tutorial describes how to back up your Uptime Kuma instance and restore it, if needed.
The time required for this tutorial is about 3-5 minutes.
You need a running Uptime Kuma instance that does not use the Docker setup.
sudo -sto get root permissions.
apt install -y zip unzip.
Enteronce to continue.
systemctl stop uptime-kuma.
exitto leave the root shell.
zip -r uptimekuma-backup.zip ./uptime-kuma/datato create a backup of your Uptime Kuma data.
sudo systemctl start uptime-kuma.
exitto leave the SSH session.
Now you have a backup of your Uptime Kuma data in the file
uptimekuma-backup.zip in the home directory of the user you used to log in to your server.
Warning: If you carry out the steps below, your current Uptime Kuma data will be overwritten!
For using this tutorial the backup file needs to be stored in the user's home directory. If it is not there, you can upload it with
sftp to your server.
If it is just the database that is broken, you can restore it easily.
If the entire Uptime Kuma instance is broken, you need to delete the current instance first and then restore the backup. For this purpose, you must delete the current instance using the command
rm -r uptime-kuma and then reinstall it by following Step 4 of the installation tutorial.
sudo systemctl stop uptime-kumato get root permissions.
rm -r uptime-kuma/datato delete the current Uptime Kuma data.
mv uptimekuma-backup.zip uptime-kuma && cd uptime-kuma.
unzip uptimekuma-backup.zipto restore the backup.
sudo systemctl start uptime-kumato start the Uptime Kuma service.
Now you know how to back up and restore your Uptime Kuma instance.
Thank you for reading this tutorial.
