How to Restore a Webgility Database Backup

If you are moving a database to a different machine or recovering from a system failure, you may need to restore your database from a backup so you do not lose any work or settings. Follow these steps to restore your database.

Note: In case of a system failure, restoring the database must be done after installing the Webgility application and SQL.

1). From the header bar in Webgility, go to System> Database> Restore.

2. A popup will appear, cautioning you about overwriting existing data. Click "Yes" to proceed.

3. Browse for your most recent UnifyDB.bak file and click "Open."

4. After a brief moment, you will receive a success message. Closing this message will exit the software. Upon relaunch, you will observe that your data has been successfully restored.

Identify The Workstation

To generate a database backup in Webgility, you can initiate the process from any workstation. However, it's essential to identify the location of the SQL installation, as the.bak file will be created in that directory. To determine the correct workstation name, follow these steps:

1. Navigate to C:\Webgility\UnifyEnterprise\XML.

2. Open the "apiconfig" file using Notepad.
