[root@gateway ~]# /usr/local/sbin/backup_ezlogin.php -nologs
By default, the backup archives are created in /var/ directory. To change the destination directory, use
[root@gateway ~]#php /usr/local/sbin/backup_ezlogin.php -out /backup_directory/
This would create a executable archive of your ezeelogin installation in /var/ezlogin_backup_v6.2.0_b167_Fri_Mar_02_2012_04_23_22_CST.bin
Execute the backup bin file to restore if something goes wrong and you would like to revert.
