Backup Your Node
AllStarLink has a built-in back feature that is often overlooked. Backups are very easy to create and restore. Backups are stored on our Backup server.
To enable backups you'll need to set up the savenode.conf file as shown. Replace the node number and password with any one of the node's info on your server. The backup filename will be the chosen node number.
NODE=1999 PASSWORD=123456 ENABLE=1
Then to create a backup type:
All nodes on this node's server will be backed up.
- Point your browser at [Backup server] and enter your node number and it's password.
- You will see your last four backups in tgz format. Click the one you want to download it.
- With your favorite file transfer program upload the file to your user home directory.
gzip node.tgz. Then cp all or some of the files to the /etc/asterisk directory.
