Backing Up your Configuration using the CLI

This topic describes how to backup up your data and current configuration using the CLI. You will need an FTP server to back up the current configuration from the CLI.

  1. Log into the CLI.
  2. Enter the following command to back up your local database, system-configuration settings, archives and reports:
    execute backup all-settings <ftp server> <filepath> <username> <password> [cryptpasswd]
    For details about backup and restore using the CLI, see the All-Settings Backup and All-Settings Restore sections in Appliance - Command Line Interface.
  3. After successfully backing up your configuration files from the CLI, proceed with upgrading FortiDB firmware.
