Backing up SquaredUp for Azure
You will need to connect to your SquaredUp server.
We recommend you stop the squaredup application pool and then backup the entire
squaredupv[Version Number] application folder.
For an Azure Marketplace deployment the squaredupv[Version Number] folder will typically be located at F:\squaredupv5 or F:\squaredupv4.
For an install using the downloadable installer the default location is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SquaredUpv5 or C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SquaredUpv4 but a custom location may have been chosen during the installation.
If you wish you can just backup the
SquaredUpv[Version Number]\User folder, as this is where your specific dashboards and settings are located. Within the User folder the
Packages folder contains your user-published dashboards and perspectives and
Configuration folder contains your SquaredUp configuration settings.
