Accessing reports from a backup


(Richard Spencer) #1

I used Discourse to manage a community co-creating some reports.

I have since finished using Discourse - and downloaded a full backup of the site before closing the account.

I would like to be able to access the stats and reporting from my backup.

Does anybody know how I can do this?

Thank you

If you’re fluent in SQL, you can extract the .sql file from the backup archive and re-create the database.

If you’re not, then your best chance would be to launch another Discourse instance and restore the backup.

I have never used SQL…

I guess that means ‘launch another Discourse instance’ is the only answer then!
