08 Backup and Restore – FreePBX 101 v15

New for 2021! FreePBX 101 v15 is a comprehensive tutorial series that covers everything you need to know to plan for, install, and configure the open source FreePBX phone system from Sangoma.

In this video, we will go over how to properly set up local backups on the FreePBX server. Keep in mind, that any production system should NOT only store backups locally on the hard drive of the FreePBX server (what happens when the hard drive fails?). You should always also set up an offiste backup in addition to any local backups.
