Backup Strategy

Post by Joerg » Tue Jun 28, 2016 4:14 am

VueMinder has a nice backup functionality included. So far so good. But when thinking about a large user group, where every user has its own VueMinder installed, the administrator has to save all single VueMinder data separately (maybe into one central file server directory).

What about saving the MySQL synchronisation database instead, which includes all single user VueMinder data? This would save backing-up all single databases regularly.

Hi Joerg, thank you for the feedback. The local backup includes other things that aren't part of the shared database, such as the window layout, custom toolbars, recent search words, column order/layout, program options, etc.
