Restoring Backups

In order to fully restore your PhotoPrism instance you need the following:

  • All content from your originals folder
  • An index database SQL dump

(A backup based on our documentation will be enough)

After verifying that you have all you need, continue with the following restore-procedure:

  1. Restore the contents in your originals folder
  2. photoprism restore -i [filename-to-your-sql-dump]
  3. Re-index (Complete rescan) your library, in order to re-generate thumbnails.

Important: When restoring the database, the login credentials will also be restored.
