Having a Backup is a matter of great importance. Just recently GitLab reminded us that mistakes do happen sometimes.
We, as a service, couldn't afford to lose any clients data, so we have always had internal disaster recovery backups of all the data on our servers, but we felt that this wasn't enough.
We wanted to give our clients the ability to be in control of their database backups and also the ability to quickly restore them if necessary.
This is the reason why we are rolling out our new feature - Automatic Database Backups.
You can activate your Database Backups through your app's dashboard under Automatic Database Backups menu.
After the activation, this will be the place where you can find the list of all your backups and choose one to restore if necessary.
Тhere you can also see your Restore History as list of all restored backups, containing the date of the restoration, the date of the backup restored and the collaborator who restored it.
If you wish to deactivate the service, you can do this in App Settings -> Automatic Database Backups.
Check out our updated F.A.Q. Page for more info and
if you have any other questions, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our live chat.
Happy backing up,
