    1010To create a backup of a live TracEnvironment, simply run:
    11 {{{
    12 
    13   $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv hotcopy /path/to/backupdir
    14 
     11 {{{#!sh
     12$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv hotcopy /path/to/backupdir

    1917The resulting backup directory is safe to handle using standard file-based backup tools like `tar` or `dump`/`restore`.

    21 Please, note, that hotcopy command does not overwrite target directory and when such exists, hotcopy ends with error: `Command failed: [Errno 17] File exists:` This is discussed in [trac:ticket:3198 #3198].

    2321=== Restoring a Backup ===
     
    2725To restore an environment from a backup, stop the process running Trac (i.e. the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd]), restore the contents of your backup (path/to/backupdir) to your [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory and restart the service.

    29   ''Note: Automatic backup of environments that don't use SQLite as database backend is not supported at this time. As a workaround, we recommend that you stop the server, copy the environment directory, and make a backup of the database using whatever mechanism is provided by the database system.''
