System Backups

In addition to performing regular backups of reliable storage, you should perform the following backups:

  1. All databases
  2. Binary storage
  3. $JIVE_HOME

For $JIVE_HOME, the most simple backup solution is to back up the entire contents of this directory. A more selective option is to backup only $JIVE_HOME/applications and $JIVE_HOME/etc. In either case, you should make backups in accordance with standard backup practices.

Before upgrading Jive, you should make a full backup of /usr/local/jive.
