gm-restore_data - restoring data into an empty GNUmed database

GM-RESTORE_DATA(8) System Manager's Manual GM-RESTORE_DATA(8)

NAME

gm-restore_data - restoring data into an empty GNUmed database
 

SYNOPSIS

gm-restore_database <target database> <backup file>
 
<target database>: a GNUmed database (such as "gnumed_v20")
 
<backup file>: a data-only GNUmed database backup file (such as "backup-gnumed_vX-*-data_only.tar.bz2")
 

DESCRIPTION

The gm-restore_database script tries to restore a GNUmed database from a data-only backup. It tries to be very conservative. It is intended for interactive use by root and may have to be adjusted to your needs.
 

KNOWN PROBLEMS

Note that for some reason restoring does not work when the backup file you intend to restore is a link to the actual backup. Use the full path instead.
