To create a backup of your database, navigate to 'Data' when you are inside of your environment. From there, navigate to the 'Database Backups' section and click 'Create database backup'. After clicking, the backup creation will begin and will be available a short time later.
- You can only create database backups if your cloud platform uses a dedicated database server
- These backups are not plain SQL dumps but snapshots of the database server, i.e., state of the server at the moment you hit the button
After creation, you can either restore or delete the backup but you can't download it (Amazon Web Services does not permit the download).
