Backing Up and Restoring Pivotal Cloud Foundry
Page last updated:
The following considerations are important when backing up data in your Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) deployment:
If your deployment uses external databases, for example, AWS RDS, you must back up your data according to the instructions provided by your database vendor.
If your PCF deployment originated from 1.5.x or earlier, follow the backup/restore instructions for PostgreSQL databases and for the MySQL server.
If your PCF deployment originated from 1.6.0 or later, follow the backup/restore instructions for the MySQL server, but not those for PostgreSQL databases.
If you do not know the original version of your PCF deployment, perform the following to determine what databases your deployment uses:
- From the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard, click Pivotal Elastic Runtime.
- Click Databases to determine whether your deployment uses internal databases with MySQL and PostgresQL, internal databases with MySQL only, or external databases.
