Backing up data

Most databases come with backup tools. We recommend using these tools to back up your data.

Restoring data

To restore data from the backup and or trigger a full ElasticSearch reindex, follow these steps:

  1. Stop the server.
  2. Restore the backup.
  3. Drop the Elasticsearch indexes by deleting the contents of <SONARQUBE_HOME>/data/es6 directory.
  4. Restart the server.
