Backup automation

How to schedule automatic backups of apps and files

In QuintaDB, you can automate backups of applications and files to mail and FTP.
To do this, you need to go to the Application Settings, which can be found on the "Modules" page of your application:

Settings in Modules

Or in the sidebar:
Settings in Menu

When you open the application settings, you will see the "Backups" tab:
Backup tab in Settings

On this tab, you can create a task to automate backups.
Backup applications

You can schedule a backup of an application or files.
The application backup will save all project settings, its structure and data in JSON format.
The file backup will include separate archives with the files of each table, as well as a backup of the Files module.
Backup will be sent to the entered mail:

Creating the task for scheduled backups

Or to your FTP server:

Backup to FTP

You can choose either FTP or SFTP server. In both cases, you need to enter the server address, connection mode, login, password and, optionally, a directory.
The directory must be in the same format as in the screenshot, that is, it must end with a slash (/).
The "Time" tab sets the day of the week (or Daily), the time, and the time zone. And at this time, the backup of the project will automatically start.
Setting the time for the scheduled backup
Scheduled backups can be edited, deleted or run manually at any time:

Scheduled file and application backups

Backup automation is available only to users with a Paid account type.
When backing up a project, "Exported records" resources will be used in accordance with your tariff plan.
And with Backup Files - "Exported Files".

When backing up, letters with archives in ZIP format will be sent to the mail.

Backups in email inbox

If the archive is larger than 1 GB, it will be split into several parts of 1 GB each.
An attachment to a letter cannot be more than 20 megabytes, so if the archive is larger, you will receive a link where you can download the entire archive.
Please note that the link will be valid for 24 hours.
