    5 Backups are simply a copied snapshot of the entire [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory, including the database. Backups can be created using the `hotcopy` command in [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin].
     4Since Trac uses a database backend, some extra care is required to safely create a backup of a [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment]. Luckily, [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] has a command to make backups easier: `hotcopy`.
    65
    7 '''Note''': Trac uses the `hotcopy` nomenclature to match that of [http://subversion.tigris.org/ Subversion], to make it easier to remember when managing both Trac and Subversion servers.

    11 To create a backup of a live TracEnvironment simply run:
    12 {{{#!sh

    1819The resulting backup directory is safe to handle using standard file-based backup tools like `tar` or `dump`/`restore`.

    20 Please note, the `hotcopy` command will not overwrite a target directory and when such exists, the operation ends with an error: `Command failed: [Errno 17] File exists:` This is discussed in [trac:ticket:3198 #3198].

    24 To restore an environment from a backup, stop the process running Trac, ie the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd], restore the contents of your backup (path/to/backupdir) to your [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory and restart the service.
     25Backups are simply a copied snapshot of the entire [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory, including the SQLite database.

    26 To restore a PostgreSQL database backup, use the command:
    27 {{{#!sh
    28 psql -U <user> -d <database> -f postgresql.dump
    29 }}}
    30 The `<database>` option is the same as the [TracEnvironment#DatabaseConnectionStrings database connection string] in the `[trac]` `database` option of //trac.ini//.
     27To restore an environment from a backup, stop the process running Trac (i.e. the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd]), restore the contents of your backup (path/to/backupdir) to your [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory and restart the service.
