Faveo has an inbuilt backup option which needs to be setup before taking backups. Let’s configure backup for the Faveo by following the below steps.

1. Make storage folder for backups.

Make a storage directory under the path /var/www by the following command.

mkdir -p /var/www/storage/

Change ownership of the of the storage directory by following commmand.

For Ubuntu/Debian

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/storage/

For Alma, Rocky, RHEL

chown -R apache:apache /var/www/storage/

b. For Windows Based Systems:

Make a storage directory under the path C:\inetpub\

Right click on storage directory and in the security tab click on edit and add user IUSR. Give full permissions to IIS_IUSRS, IUSR and Users for the storage folder.

2. Setup Backup Directory in Faveo.
