Hello Plastic team!

I'm currently evaluating Plastic SCM and Accurev. I like Plastic because it uses Firebird, which I think is the best database out there. Being said that: how can I back up the db used by Plastic? Is it a regular one? Do I have to use gbak?

Hello Jean,

If you are using Firebird, the way to do a server database backup is the following:

1.- Stop PlasticSCM server

2.- Go to the server installation folder (By default is c:\Program Files\PlasticSCM\server on windows systems or /opt/PlasticSCM/server on linux systems)

3.- Copy all files with the extension .FDB into your backup directory

4.- Start PlasticSCM server

You can automatize this process in order to do a daily backup, for example. Here is a Windows script sample:

c:\Program Files\PlasticSCM\server\loader --stop
copy c:\Program Files\PlasticSCM\server\*.fdb c:\mybackups
c:\Program Files\PlasticSCM\server\loader --start
