Restoring a Repository from the File System

This section describes how to restore a repository backed up in the file system.

To restore a repository from the file system:

  1. Copy the backed up repository to the ALM repository.

  2. In Site Administration, restore the project. If you are restoring your project from a different directory, or if you renamed your schema, you must update the dbid.xml file accordingly. For details on restoring access to projects, see Restoring Access to Projects.

  3. If the backup was performed while the project was active, you must restore the database and the file system from a backup that was created after the database backup was created, realign the project, and then activate the project. This procedure must always be performed during disaster recovery. For details, see Realigning Repositories. If this process is done in order to recover certain files or directories, you can skip the realignment.
