Standard tier databases include 7 days of automatic daily backups. The information below will help in the event you need to restore to a prior point.

Restoring a Database Backup

We take automatic backups every day and keeps seven backups available.

First, get your database ID by running:

gigalixir pg

View what backups you have available by running:

gigalixir pg:backups -d $DATABASE_ID

Find the backup ID you want.

Recover the backup with:

gigalixir pg:backups:restore -d $DATABASE_ID -b $BACKUP_ID

This can take a while. Sometimes over ten minutes. To check the status, run:

gigalixir pg
