Here is the minimal list of what should be backed up, in order to be able to restore / reinstall a Runtime.
The following directories should be backed up regularly, recursively (including their files and subdirectories).
Default location of the published deliveries. The subdirectory "wsdl" contains the deliveries published as a webservice.
Default location where the Runtime will search for .pck packages.
Useful only when the Runtime is used for building Deliveries from Packages.
|lib/addons||This is where the jar files for optional connectors are installed (Salesforce connector, SAP connector, Amazon web services, etc.)|
|lib/jdbc||This folder contains the JDBC drivers that the Runtime uses|
|log||The Runtime log files. They can be deleted with no harm, but you may want to keep them for further investigation.|
|properties||The Runtime properties.|
|scheduler||This is where the default H2 Scheduler database is located. If you the Runtime uses an external scheduler database then this folder can be ignored, see below.|
|sessions||This is where the default H2 Log database is located. If the Runtime uses an external log database then this folder can be ignored, see below.|
Runtime log external database
If the Runtime uses an external log database then a proper backup strategy must be defined and applied on this database.
Note : if for any sad reason the Runtime log database is lost and/or corrupted and cannot be repaired, then the Runtime will be able to start after droping the 15 tables. All session history will be lost.
Runtime scheduler external database
If the Runtime uses an external scheduler database then a proper backup strategy must be defined and applied on this database.
