This command is intended for official Snipe-IT generated backups ONLY. If you are trying to restore from a manually generated database and filesystem backups (using PHPMyAdmin,
mysqldump, etc), this command will not work unless you recreate the structure of the zip file that Snipe-IT generates.
If you have a previously generated Snipe-IT backup file that you'd like to restore back to (for example, if you did a backup right before a big LDAP sync, and you realized the sync wasn't configured correctly and you need to roll that back), you can use the command-line utility to restore it to a known good state:
php artisan snipeit:restore /full/path/to/your/backup.zip
There are a few additional optional parameters you can also use:
php artisan snipeit:restore /full/path/to/your/backup.zip --force
This will force the restore without asking you to confirm by typing
Yes after the prompt.
php artisan snipeit:restore /full/path/to/your/backup.zip --no-progress
This will hide the progress bar in the terminal.
php artisan migrate
If for some reason you can't get the Snipe-IT-generated backup to work (and for example have to do a manual database dump, etc), the file structure Snipe-IT is expecting in the .zip file you can assemble it yourself:
- SQL file should be at the top level. It can be named anything, but must end in
.sqland there must only be done.
- You should have a
public/uploadsdirectory (with subdirectories) and a
storage/private_uploadsdirectory (with subdirectories).
- Anything else in the zip file will be skipped.
