Chamilo 1.11 - English

Import backup

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.
