Your email marketing software comes entirely self-contained inside of the edcom-install directory, making backups a breeze.

Backing up your platform

Change directory to your installation and bring it down:

cd /root/edcom-install

docker compose down

Make a copy of your edcom-install directory using the usual methods such as a tar file, scp, cloud backup software like SpiderOak, an external volume, etc.

  3. Change directory to your installation, i.e. cd /root/edcom-install and run:


User data resides under edcom-install/data and edom-install/config. If you only back up those two directories you should also be able to do a complete restore at a later date by unpacking the latest installation archive and copying those directories into it afterward.
