Backup Which Directories

Post by neoform » 2006-08-11 16:56

I do daily backups of all critical stuff on my server, i was wondering what directories i should backup in hmailsevrer..

(right now i'm using an external mysql server, so i'm guessing there's no need to backup the mysql dir)

is it just the 'data' directory that needs backing up?

Try: http://www.hmailserver.com/documentatio ... up_restore

To find your data folder, check your C:\Program Files\hMailServer\Bin\hMailServer.ini file.

You're welcome. I really like the built in back-up myself. Have you given it a try? If you do, don't forget to stop the hmailserver service first.
