Restore your PingAccess using a .zip archive and additional customized files.

This procedure restores the PingAccess configuration using a .zip archive and additional customization files. You can use this method for disaster recovery because it uses an automatically-generated file and restores the entire PingAccess configuration.

To restore your PingAccess using a .zip archive and additional customized files:

  1. If PingAccess is not installed on the system, install the same version of PingAccess used to create the backup.
    Note:

    The maintenance version does not have to be identical. For example, a backup made on PingAccess 6.3.0 could be restored on 6.3.1.

  2. Stop PingAccess.
  3. Extract the backup .zip archive to <PA_HOME>.
  4. Optional: If you backed up custom templates, copy the backed up content to the <PA_HOME>/conf/template directory.
  5. Optional: If you backed up custom plugins, copy the backed up content to the <PA_HOME>/deploy directory.
  6. Optional: If you backed up custom localization, copy the backed up content to the <PA_HOME>/conf/localization directory.
  7. Restart PingAccess.
    Your PingAccess configuration is reverted to the configuration in the backup archive.
