Generating your Saavi

Saavi is a private key for the encryption of your backups.

  1. You can click the Generate Saavi button to generate your default Saavi.
  2. Check if the file (petti_default.saavi) is saved successfully on the desired path. It's vital to verify this because Saavi generation is a one-time process.
  3. Now proceed with "yes" on the dialog option if the Saavi got saved successfully. If not, regenerate a new Saavi.

Creating Backup

  1. Login to the dashboard and click on the Create Backup button in the top right corner of the Backups card.

  2. Fill in the name. The backup name is for your reference and has nothing to do with configuration. We suggest naming in the following format _NAME (_ENVIRONMENT) [_IP]

    • _NAME is the name of the server.
    • _ENVIRONMENT is the environment of the server. For example, dev, staging, prod.
    • _IP is the IP address of the server.
  3. Select the Platform you wish to backup.
