Each backup is a compressed file (a Zip file) which is stored on the server (in the archive/ directory). It can also be downloaded to your computer.
Chamilo also allows you to import the contents of a backup copy inside a new empty course. This can be useful for a teacher creating a new course.
To start the import:
click the Import backup link in the Backup and import section
choose the source of backup: either a .zip file on your computer or one stored on the server,
choose whether you want to import the whole course or only specific sections (to be selected in the next screen),
decide whether to duplicate specific files during the importation operation or to replace them,
click Import backup to start the import.
