The Backup app is installed by the Backup module. See Backup module documentation for more information about using the app.

Please be aware that version 1.6.1 of the Backup module may not restore your datastore correctly due to a bug that is corrected in version 2.0 ( MGNLBACKUP-99 - Refactor backup module to use RepositoryCopier API in order to achieve stability CLOSED ).

The Backup app is accessible in Tools > Backup. Backup is an EE feature.

The Backup app allows you to:

  • Manual backup: Take a manual backup.
  • Automatic backup: Schedule automatic backups.
  • Existing tasks: View scheduled backup tasks configured at Configuration > /modules/backup/config/tasks.


The Backup app is based on the small app concept and installed by the Backup module. Access to the app is restricted to the superuser role in the app configuration and app launcher layout configuration. The app is configured at Configuration > /modules/backup/apps/backup.
