Software Management: Download a Backup, Upgrade Software

Management > Software Management

Software :: Backup Settings

Save a secure copy of your software configuration. Choose if you want your backup to be password protected, and then click the Download Backup button. If you do choose to set a password, you will be unable to revert to the backup without providing the password.

It is an important disaster recovery best practice to save a backup copy of your software settings regularly. Bomgar recommends backing up your Bomgar Appliance configuration each time you change its settings. In the event of a hardware failure, a backup file will speed time-to-recovery and, if necessary, allow Bomgar to provide you access to temporary hosted services while retaining the settings from your most recent backup.

Software :: Restore Settings

Should you need to revert to a backup, browse to the latest backup file that you saved. If applicable, enter the backup password and then click Upload Backup.

Note: Restoring the site backup does not revert the help icon to the image present at time of backup (see HTML Templates: Customize the Web Interface), nor does it remove any files added since backup. Not all files are backed up, only the first 50 files under 200KB in size.

Software :: Upload Update

Use Upload Software Update to manually upload new software packages from Bomgar. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to upload the software package. The Uploaded Update section displays additional information to verify your uploaded package. Click Install if you wish to complete the installation process, or Delete Update if you wish to clear the update staging area. If your update package only contains additional licenses, you can install the update without restarting the appliance. After confirmation that you wish to install, the page will display a progress bar to notify you of the overall installation progress. Updates made here will automatically update all sites and licenses on your Bomgar Appliance.

Note: Your Bomgar Appliance administrator can also use the Check for Updates feature of the /appliance web interface to automatically search for and install new software packages.
