    13   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv hotcopy /path/to/backupdir
    14 
     11 {{{#!sh
     12$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv hotcopy /path/to/backupdir
    1513}}}

    2321=== Restoring a Backup ===
     
    2523Backups are simply a copied snapshot of the entire [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory, including the SQLite database.
    2624
    27 To restore an environment from a backup, simply stop the process running Trac (i.e. the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd]), restore the directory structure from the backup and restart the service.

    29   ''Note: Automatic backup of environments that don't use SQLite as database backend is not supported at this time. As a workaround, we recommend that you stop the server, copy the environment directory, and make a backup of the database using whatever mechanism is provided by the database system.''
     25To restore an environment from a backup, stop the process running Trac (i.e. the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd]), restore the contents of your backup (path/to/backupdir) to your [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory and restart the service.
