Suddenly I found that all configuration and Database has been deleted

Hello,

 

I am using CodeReview free version for 10 user (under evaluation ) and suddenly I found all configuration and data base has been removed.

I am using embedded database,

1- could you please tell me the path of the embedded database and users configuration that tool generates after setup to check if the database still exist or not

2- is there a way to check why this error happened

 

Thanks and best regards,

Walid

      The hsql database files are found in the tomcat subdirectory of the install by default. (e.g. /opt/ccollab_server/tomcat); user information is stored in the embedded DB as well.  There is an automated DB backup feature, but I am not sure off hand if it is enabled for the free version.  Those are stored as daily snapshots in tar.gz format in tomcat/collaborator-content-cache/db_backups; sadly if your database is corrupted and has been for longer than seven days then it is likely those backup files are themselves storing incorrect information.

        Thanks for reply, currently I am backing up manually all ccollab_server folder every week.
