How do I restore my Billings Pro database backup?

Depending on your scenario, there are two ways in which you can restore the Billings Pro database backup.

Scenario 1: If you have made a backup of your Billings Pro database via Billings Pro Server Admin and you wish to move to a new server machine, then you can simply restore the backup on the new machine.

Please do the following during the first run.

  1. Launch Billings Pro Server Admin.
  2. Click Restore a backup.
  3. Choose your backup file and click Continue.
  4. Specify the backup location and schedule. Click Continue.
  5. Specify the network settings. Click Continue.
  6. Enter the details of the first worker. Click Continue.
  7. Set up additional workers, if necessary, and allocate the privileges to access the applications. Click Continue.
  8. When done, click Finish. Billings Pro Server Admin window opens and the server is automatically turned On for you.

Scenario 2: You would like to restore an older backup of your Billings Pro database due to a problem.

Please do the following:

  1. Launch Billings Pro Server Admin and turn the switch OFF.
  2. Click Replace with backup and click OK.
  3. Choose your backup file and click Select.
  4. Turn the Server switch back to ON.

Before you proceed ahead, click the Licenses tab and enter your license information. Now, your database is ready to be accessed again.

Warning: All Billings Pro clients will need to Log Out (File menu > Log out) and Log back in to the restored database and create a new Offline. Any un-synched changes will be lost.
