Back Up and Restore Data

For backup destinations other than the local filesystem, all leaves must have access to write to the target destination.


This topic applies to database backups made using the BACKUP DATABASE command.

Incremental backups cannot be made on unlimited storage databases.

Unlimited storage databases can be restored (attached) to any point in time using PITR, which is not discussed in this topic. See Database Storage for information on PITR.


SingleStore does not support restoring database backups from a newer version of SingleStore into an older version.

Databases on a secondary workspace to which the primary database is being replicated cannot be backed up with the BACKUP DATABASE command.
