Used to restore:
Versions 15 and later
The restored backup can be a full backup or a differential backup.
New in version 15
The restored backup can be a full backup or a differential backup.
The restored backup can be a full backup or a differential backup.
Caution: restoring a backup must be done with great care.
To perform this operation, you must have the rights to perform a backup (hRightsBackup) as well as the rights to lock the database (hRightsLock).
To restore the entire server (or the __jnl and __trs databases), no other application must be connected to the server. The connection used must not be attached to a database (during the call to <Connection variable>.OpenConnection, the <Database> parameter must correspond to an empty string ("")).
To restore the databases, no connection must be established on the database to restore.
Duplicating a database: A special syntax of <Connection variable>.RestoreBackup (syntax 2) is used to restore the backup of a database under a different name. This allows you to perform a copy of a database by renaming it. For example: to perform a copy of the MyDatabase2008 database by renaming it into MyDatabase2009, all you have to do is perform a backup of MyDatabase2008 and restore it under the MyDatabase2009 name. Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.

END
ctServer is Connection
 
// Restore a full and differential backup
BackupInfo = ctServer.InfoBackup(BackupID)
BackupPath_Diff = ExtractString(BackupInfo, 4, TAB)
 
BackupInfo = ctServer.InfoBackup(nBackupID_Full)
BackupPath_Comp = ExtractString(BackupInfo, 4, TAB)
 
IF ctServer.RestoreBackup(BackupPath_Comp, BackupPath_Diff) = False THEN
Error("Failure restoring the backup" + HErrorInfo(hErrMessage))

Syntax

Restoring a backup from its identifier or from its path Hide the details

<Result> = <Connection>.RestoreBackup(<Backup> [, <Progress Bar>])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the backup was restored,
  • False otherwise. HError is used to identify the error.
<Connection>: Connection variable
Name of the Connection variable that describes the connection to the server on which the backup will be restored.
<Backup>: Integer or character string
Can correspond to:
  • Backup identifier. This identifier can correspond to the identifier of full backup or to the identifier of differential backup.
    During an immediate backup, this identifier is returned by <Connection variable>.Backup. This identifier can also be returned by <Connection variable>.InfoBackup.
    During a scheduled backup, this identifier corresponds to the ..Identifier property of the hBackupDescription variable.
  • Path and name of backup to restore. This name was specified during the backup. This name can also be returned by <Connection variable>.InfoBackup. If this name corresponds to a relative path, the backup will be sought in the "Backup" sub-directory of HFSQL server. To specify the directory of Manta service, all you have to do is use "%%EXE%%".
<Progress Bar>: Optional window name, optional control name or optional integer
  • Name of window where the progress bar will be displayed or name of Progress Bar control.
  • Identifier (Handle) of window that displays the progress bar.
WEBDEV - Server code This parameter is ignored.

Restoring a backup under a different database name Hide the details

<Result> = <Connection>.RestoreBackup(<Backup> , <Source database> , <Destination database> [, <Progress Bar>])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the backup was restored,
  • False otherwise. HError is used to identify the error.
<Connection>: Connection variable
Name of the Connection variable that describes the connection to the server on which the backup will be restored.
<Backup>: Integer or character string
Can correspond to:
  • Backup identifier, returned by <Connection variable>.Backup. This identifier can also be returned by <Connection variable>.InfoBackup.
  • Path and name of backup to restore. This name was specified during the backup. This name can also be returned by <Connection variable>.InfoBackup. If this name corresponds to a relative path, the backup will be sought in the "Backup" sub-directory of HFSQL server. To specify the directory of Manta service, all you have to do is use "%%EXE%%".
<Source database>: Character string (with quotes)
Name of database to restore found in the backup. This syntax allows you to restore a single database found in the backup.
<Destination database>: Character string (with quotes)
Name of database that will be restored. This name may be different from the source database. In this case, the function allows you to make a copy of the database and rename it.
<Progress Bar>: Optional window name, optional control name or optional integer
  • Name of window where the progress bar will be displayed or name of Progress Bar control.
  • Identifier (Handle) of window that displays the progress bar.
WEBDEV - Server code This parameter is ignored.

Restoring a differential backup found in a specific directory (available from version 15) Hide the details

<Result> = <Connection>.RestoreBackup(<Full backup> , <Differential backup> [, <Progress Bar>])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the backup was restored,
  • False otherwise. HError is used to identify the error.
<Connection>: Connection variable
Name of the Connection variable that describes the connection to the server on which the backup will be restored.
<Full backup>: Character string (with quotes)
Path and name of the full backup to restore. This name was specified during the backup. This name can also be returned by <Connection variable>.InfoBackup. If this name corresponds to a relative path, the backup will be sought in the "Backup" sub-directory of HFSQL server. To specify the directory of Manta service, all you have to do is use "%%EXE%%".
<Differential backup>: Character string (with quotes)
Path and name of the differential backup that must be applied to the full backup. This name was specified during the backup. This name can also be returned by <Connection variable>.InfoBackup. If this name corresponds to a relative path, the backup will be sought in the "Backup" sub-directory of HFSQL server. To specify the directory of Manta service, all you have to do is use "%%EXE%%".
<Progress Bar>: Optional window name, optional control name or optional integer
  • Name of window where the progress bar will be displayed or name of Progress Bar control.
  • Identifier (Handle) of window that displays the progress bar.
WEBDEV - Server code This parameter is ignored.
Remarks

Rights required to restore a backup

To restore a backup, the user or the group must have:
  • the rights to perform backups (hRightsBackup constant). These rights apply to the servers and to the databases.
  • the rights to lock the database (hRightsLock constant). These rights apply to the databases.
To find out whether these rights are granted to a user or to a group, use <Connection variable>.InfoServerRights or <Connection variable>.InfoDatabaseRights.
To modify the rights granted to a user or to a group of users, use <Connection variable>.ModifyServerRights or <Connection variable>.ModifyDatabaseRights.

Restore operation performed from the HFSQL Control Center

A backup can be restored from the HFSQL Control Center. This backup is available in the "Backups" tab of the server description.
