Backup & Recovery

Backup and recovery options

Keeper Connection Manager is packaged and installed in your environment. As such, backups should be taken in order to recover the environment if required.

Server Backup Instructions

  • We recommend performing daily snapshots of your Keeper Connection Manager instances.

  • In most installations, a database running locally or within the Docker containers includes the connection and user data. When backing up the instance, ensure that the database is included.

  • When using the Advanced Linux Install method, ensure that the /etc/guacamole/ folder is included in the snapshot.

Database Snapshots

  • For Docker installs, the backup command will run a backup locally.

  • For other installation methods, please use the database platform's backup features, for example mysqladmin on MySQL backed installs.
