Backing up your system

Updated on December 8, 2021

Back up the existing database, your applications, and Pega Platform in the event that you need to restore your system.

Before you begin:
Note: The deployment process modifies both the data schema and the rules schema. Use a backup procedure that preserves both schemas.
  1. Verify that all rules are checked in.
  2. Shut down the Pega Platform application server.
  3. Use your database utilities to back up the Pega Platform database.
  4. If you edited any of the following Pega Platform configuration files in the APP- INF\classes directory of an EAR deployment or the WEB-INF\classes directory of a WAR deployment, include these files in the backup:
    • prconfig.xml
    • logging file: prlogging.xml or prlog4j2.xml
    • web.xml
    • pegarules.keyring or any other .keyring files
  5. Back up any third-party or custom JAR files that you installed. Redeploying the Pega Platform applications might delete these from your application server.
