This article describes the procedure for restoring a TYPO3 backup.
1. install TYPO3
Install TYPO3 in the version from which the backup was created. Official downloads are available here: https://get.typo3.org/
2. import database
If the file db_dump.sql.gz is available as in our article on TYPO3 backup, unpack it and perform an import of the data with mysql:
gunzip db_dump.sql.gz mysql -h<HOST> -u<USER> -p<Password> --default-character-set=utf8 <DATABASE> mysql> SET names 'utf8' mysql> SOURCE db_dump.sql
3. Copy directories fileadmin and uploads
Recursively delete all files from the directories fileadmin and uploads (if available) of the standard installation from step 1:
cd <PATH_OF_TYPO3_INSTALLATION> rm -r fileadmin/* rm -r uploads/*
Copy the files from the previous installation recursively("-r") and keeping the timestamps and access rights("-p"):
scp -rp user@<BISHERIGER_RECHNER>:<FULL_QUALIFIED_PATH>/fileadmin/* . scp -rp user@<PREVIOUS_CALCULATOR>:<FULL_QUALIFIED_PATH>/uploads/* .
4. Copy extensions
Next, copy the extensions:
scp -rp user@<PREVIOUS_CALCULATOR>:<FULL_QUALIFIED_PATH>/typo3conf/ext/* typo3conf/ext/
5. Activate extensions
Activate the required extensions in the new TYPO3 backend (see previous environment).
If you want to use the installation as a test environment, configure the test domain under "Site Management" -> "Sites".
