  • Server Configuration Backup/Restore

    Using Mirth 1.7.1

    I was looking at the server configuration backup/restore as an easy way to create a test server with everything configured. I have Mirth 1.7.1 running on a production server now. I have installed Mirth 1.7.1 on a test server. I clicked backup on the production server and saved the XML file. I then clicked Restore on the test server and chose that XML file, but I get the error "Invalid server configuration file"

    Can the XML be restored to another physical box or is it tied to a specific instance of Mirth? I don't see any error log or other means of determining what it doesn't like about the file. I am not changing the file in any way - just backup then restore, so I don't know if the backup is creating an invalid file or the restore is not reading it correctly.

    Thanks,

    If you make sure your config file doesn't contain any personal information you can post it and I can take a look to see why it wouldn't be loading properly.

      Thanks!

      I've attached the config file with private info eliminated.

        You have VT (Vertical Tab) characters in two of your inboundTemplate tags. If you remove those, it should import properly. The code for the character is 0xb.

          There also appears to have been a bug with 1.7.1 server configurations, and I'm not sure if it was in 1.7. You may have to delete the entire users element from the server configuration xml. It should not have been there.

            I deleted the inbound templates and I am now able to restore the file.

            Thank you!

              Automated backup?

              Hi all. I reopen this thread to ask if is it possible to make an automatic backup?
              I use Mysql, so if I use an automatic export of all db, Have I backed up all configuration, channels and stored messages?
              Thank you very much.

                Yup, backing up the database is essentially a full backup. For more automatic backup features, I recommend taking a look at the Mirth Appliances: http://www.mirthcorp.com/products/mirth-appliances
