The directory /var/log/ezlogin stores the user ssh sessions  that is recorded. This dir could run into huge size ( 1GB >) which would cause the backup script to take long to complete ( The log dir has to be tar’red and then gzip’ed compressed which is time consuming and resource intensive).  In such, cases its advisable to skip the log directory while running the backup script as follows.

[[email protected] ~]#    /usr/local/sbin/backup_ezlogin.php -nologs

 You may store this backup archive generated in /var/ezlogin_backup.x.x remotely,  in case you need to restore it when your primary node is unrecoverable.

 When your primary node goes down, all you need is to migrate the license to the new ip from the portal and execute the backup archive on the server and you are ready to go..

 

To restore ezeelogin , simply execute the archive created.

[[email protected] ~]# /var/ezlogin_backup_v7.8.0_b381_Thu_Oct_04_2018_09_10_32_UTC.bin

If you want to restore the Ezeelogin database on a different database host you need to specify the DB host, port, etc while restoring. Following is an example to restore Ezeelogin on the remote database.

 

 sh ezlogin_backup_v7.25.4_b381_Fri_Apr_16_2021_17_24_32_IST.bin -- -dbhost 192.168.1.8 -dbport 3306 -dbsuser root -dbspasswd

If you want to do the restore in one step with your existing settings and without being prompted.

 

sh ezlogin_ backup _v7.9.0_b381_Wed_Feb_13_2019_23_26_03_IST.bin    -- -skipgeolite -auto -force -ACCEPT_SETTINGS -I_ACCEPT_EULA

 Replace the backup filename with your backup file.

 

 

You can check the   /var/log/ezlogin_backup.log and  /var/log/ezlogin_restore.log to see if there are any errors that occurred during the backup and restore process
