-The "​Backups"​ module is located in the "Service" menu. This module ​can be used to managecreate ​and delete backups ​in ICS CUBE. The main module ​window has three tabs: Backups, Templates and Settings.+The "​Backups"​ module is located in the "Maintenance" menu. This module ​is intended for managingcreating ​and deleting copies of data in the ICS CUBE. The main window ​of the module ​has three tabs: "Backups""Templates" ​and "Settings".
-{{scr02backup04-eng.jpg|BackUp Menu}}+==== Backups====
-====Backups====+**The "Backups" tab.** This tab displays the existing backup copies of the ICS CUBE and tools for working with them.
-The "​Backups"​ tab. On this tab you can see existing ICS CUBE backups and managment tools for them. To create a new ICS CUBE backup, press the "​Add"​ button. After this a dialog window will appear in which you can choose which data to saveICS CUBE settings, all gathered ICS CUBE statistics, all mail messages stored in ICS CUBE, all call records, databases for all web-resourses,​ folders from file storage. After the data is chosen, press the "​Add"​. As a result, a new backup will be created with a name <system name>​-<​date>​-<​time>​-<​content of the backup>​-<​ICS version>​-backup. +{{:backup1.png?|}}
-Also on this tab the previously created backups can be deleted, and new ones can be uploaded: from external resourses in the *.bin format (the "​Upload"​ button), and you can also upload a backup from file storage of ICS CUBE using the button "​Upload from file storage"​.+
-When you choose one of the backups, the buttons ​"Delete", ​"​Restore",​ "​Download",​ "Copy to FTP" ​will become available. If you press the "​Restore"​ button, ​ICS CUBE will restore the saved data, though if, for example, "​Statistics"​ wasn't chosen during the creation of the backup, then it will not be restored, thus, anyhow changed on the server. To save the backup outside ​the ICS CUBE server, you need to press "​Download"​ and set the path to save the backup. If you press the "Copy to FTP" button, ​ICS CUBE will attempt to copy the backup to the ftp-server set in the "​Settings"​ tab. You can see the result ​of this operation in the system log.+To create a backup copy of the ICS CUBE dataclick the "Add" ​button. After clickinga new dialog box will open where you will be asked to select ​the data to back up: 
 +  * ICS CUBE settings; 
 +  * all statistical ​data collected by the ICS CUBE
 +  * all mail messages stored on the ICS CUBE
 +  * records of all telephony calls; 
 +  * databases ​of all web resources;​ 
 +  * folders from the file storage.
-{{scr02backup01-eng.jpg|BackUp List}}+You can also add a comment to the created backup.
-The "Templates" ​tabIt can be used to create backups on scheduleand also to delete previously ​created ​backups and copy to ftp. In the ICS CUBE there are two pre-defined templates: "​Settings ​backup" (it's saving only the settings of ICS CUBE) and "​Full ​backup" (it's making a full backup of ICS CUBE). To activate one of the templates, you need to set up it's schedule.+After selecting the necessary data, click the "Add" ​buttonAs resulta backup copy will be created ​in the format <system name>​-<​date>​-<​creation time>​-<​designation of the backup ​content>​-<​ICS CUBE version>​-backup.
-To create a backup templateyou need to press the "​Add"​ button. The new dialog window "​Adding backup template"​ will be open. It has three tabs: General settings, Schedule and Copying. +Alsoon this tab, you can delete previously created backupsupload them from third-party sources ​in *.bin format (the "Upload" ​button), ​or upload them from the ICS CUBE file storage by clicking ​"Load from file storage".
-In the "​General settings" ​tab the mandatory fiels are: the name and at least one of the data types for backing up (ICS CUBE settingsall gathered ICS CUBE statistics, all mail messages stored in ICS CUBE, all calls records, databases of all web resourses, folders from file storage). In the "​Schedule"​ tab you can set the time for creation and deletion of the backup. When you set creation timeyou can also set a period (once a day, once a week, once in two weeks, once a month), a day of the week and time in the hh:mm format ​for backup creation. When setting up the schedule for backup deletion, you can set up a period ​(older then a day, older then a week, older then a month, older then 3 months, older then 6 months, older then a year) to delete backups. In the "Copying" ​tab you can set the setting for an FTP server: IP-address ​or domain name, FTP port, relative path to the folder, login and password, These settings are not connected anyhow to the settings of FTP server in the "Settings" ​tab. This way every template can be set to its own FTP server.+
-If necessary, the templates can be deleted or edited - you can choose ​the template ​and press the button ​according your needs.+When you select a backup, the following buttons become available: "​Delete",​ "​Restore",​ "​Download",​ "Copy to FTP"​. 
 +When you click the "​Restore"​ button, the ICS CUBE will restore the saved data. However, if, for example, the "​Statistics"​ item was not selected when saving the backup, then the statistics data accumulated during the time period from creating the copy to restoring it will not be changed. To save a backup copy outside of the ICS CUBE drive space, click "​Download" ​and specify ​the location where it will be saved. When you click the "Copy to FTP" ​button, the ICS CUBE will try to copy the backup to the ftp server specified in the "​Settings"​ tab. You can view the result of this operation in the system log.
-{{scr02backup02-eng.jpg|BackUp ​Templates}}+==== Templates. ====
-====Settings.====+**The "​Templates"​ tab.** It is intended for creating backups based on a specified template at specified time, as well as deleting previously created backups and copying them to a specified ftp resource and external media. There are two predefined templates in the ICS CUBE: "Settings ​backup"​ (saves only the ICS CUBE settings) and "Full backup"​ (saves a full backup of the ICS CUBE). To activate one of the templates, you need to specify the time when it is triggered.
-The "Settings" tab. You can either ​set saving the backup to ICS CUBE'​s ​hard drive (the "Hard drive for backup storage" block) ​or removable ​drive (the "​Automatically copy the backup ​to the flash drive" block) or remote FTP server (the "Copy backups to FTP server"​ block), ​it will help to ensure safety to backups ​in case of hard drive troublesTo avoid overuse ​of the hard drive (statistics backups can be rather ​large) ​you can set the parameters for automatic deletion of the old backups ​(the "​Automatically delete manual backups"​ block), setting up the appropriate schedule.+{{:​backup3.png?​|}} 
 +To create a backup template, click "Add". A new "Add backup template"​ dialog box will open. This window has three tabs: "​General settings",​ "​Schedule",​ and "Copy settings"​. 
 +In the "​General settings" tab, you must enter the template name, as well as select one of the data items for backup (ICS CUBE settings; all statistics collected by the ICS CUBE; all mail messages stored on the ICS CUBE; records of all calls; databases of all web resources; folders from the file storage). 
 +You can set the time for automatic creation and deletion of a backup in the "​Schedule"​ tab. When you specify the time of automatic creation, it is possible to set the period (every day, once a week, once in two weeks, once a month), day of the week, and backup time in the hh:mm format.  
 +When you specify the time for automatic deletion, it is possible to set the period (older than a day, older than a week, older than a month, older than 3 months, older than 6 months, older than a year) used to delete a backup copy. 
 +In the "Copy settings"​ tab, you can set removable media and FTP server settings: IP-address or domain name of the FTP server, FTP port, path to backup folder on FTP server, login and password. These settings are not related to the FTP server settings in the "​Settings"​ tab. This way, each template can be configured to create a copy on its own FTP server or flash drive. 
 +If necessary, templates can be deleted or edited by selecting the desired template and clicking the appropriate buttons. 
 +==== Settings. ==== 
 +**The "​Settings"​ tab.** In addition to saving the backup ​copy to the ICS CUBE hard drive (the "Drive for store of backups" block), you can choose the option to save to removable ​media (the "​Automatically copy backup ​on a flash drive" block) or the remote FTP server ("Copy backups to FTP server"​ block), ​this will protect the backup data in case of damage to the hard drive. ​In order to avoid overfilling ​of the hard drive with data (statistics backups can reach quite large volumes), it is possible to configure ​the automatic deletion of old backups ​created not according to the templates ("​Automatically delete ​old manual backups"​ block) ​and specify ​the required period.
