How to backup an image for quick restoration?


Hi. I’m looking into a dedicated server but it’s important that I can create an image or some kind of backup to easily restore the state of my server so in the event of a failure or if I need another server I don’t need to redo all the setup procedures. How do I do that with a dedicated server?


Hello @VianE

OVH provides an FTP space for backups that you can configure with a bash script or if you install a control panel, in the configuration of that control panel to make backups in that backup space

Otherwise, turn to your closest & trusted SysAdmin so that you can configure backup copies in spaces such as Onedrive, Google Drive, an Amazon Bucket or a personalized professional service for such purposes

Take into account that the servers that you buy from OVH are unmanaged, OVH is not responsible for this nor does it support software
