Backup Location: The backups may be sent to the 6connect cloud, or to a specific server in the Resource system. Select the radio button for the desired location.

Manual Backup - Alternate Server:
Manual Backup: Alternate Server saves a backup msql dump to a Server Resource already set up in ProVision.
This Resource needs to have the following information provided in the server section fields in order to establish a connection: Port, Hostname, Username, and Password.
Before selecting Alternate Server Backup:
1) Ensure that the Server Resource exists in ProVision for the backup (Section = "Server"). If needed, create a new entry for the server.
2) Check that the following fields are added to the Server Section:
- Network Port (22 is typical)
- Hostname (this can also be an IP address)
See Customizing Sections and Customizing Fields for information on adding fields to sections. Hostname, Username, Password, and Network Port will all be contained under the "Existing Fields" selector when adding fields to the Section.
3) On the Backup Server's Entry page, verify that the server fields are filled in and correct for the ProVision server entry:
If needed, click "Edit" and add or update the information. See Working with Entries for additional information.
Once a Backup server has been set up in ProVision, it will be available to select under Backup Settings: Alternate Server.
Select "Alternate Server" as your backup location, then select the desired ProVision server Resource. After selecting your server, click on the "Backup Now" Button.
If successful, a mysql dump file will be sent to the selected server and a "Success!" message will appear.
Once the connection is confirmed successful, Backups to alternate servers may be scheduled on a recurring basis through the Scheduler Tab, or continued to be performed manually under Backup Settings.
