Restore MediaCP

Last updated 5 days ago

A Backup Restoration may be required in the event of a system failure, or transfer to another server. By default Backups are stored in /backups location on your file system. The restoration process can restore backups from version 2.2.0.0 or newer.

The backup restoration will perform the following actions:

  • New installation of MediaCP Web Services (Apache, MySQL, PHP, etc)
  • New installation of Media Services (Wowza Streaming Engine, Icecast, LiquidSoap, etc)
  • Restoration of MediaCP htdocs/
  • Restoration of MediaCP Database
  • Restoration of media services content files
The restoration process will prompt you for a custom media content path if you wish to relocate your media files to another disk during the migration.
 

Step 1: Copy the backup file to your server .

Step 2: Run the following to start the restoration software:

cd /root;rm -f init;wget http://install.mediacp.net/scripts/init;chmod +x init;./init restore

Step 3: You will be prompted for your license key.

Step 4: You will be prompted for the full path to your backup file.

Step 5: You will also be prompted to specify a location for you media content files. If you wish to leave this as default, simply press return. If you wish to install the media files to a different location, you may do so here and a symlink will be created automatically from /usr/local/mediacp/content to the new location.

Step 6: You will be prompted for the domain name for the MediaCP to be installed on

The restoration may take some time to complete.

If you have difficulty, please get in touch with our support team.
