Difference between backupConfig and manageprofiles -backupProfile commands

Filed under: WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Portal — Tags: — Ishtiaque @ 2:42 pm

The <profile_root>/bin/backupConfig backs up only config directory of a profile. But the <profile_root>/bin/manageprofiles -backupProfile command backs up all the directories of a profile that include config, installedApps, properties, logs and others directories.

Here’s syntax of both commands:

  • <profile_root>/bin/backupConfig

It will create a .zip file inside <profile_root>/bin/WebSphereConfig_yyyy-mm-dd.zip

  • manageprofiles -backupProfile -profileName profile1 -backupFile D:/backups/profile1_backup.zip

Note: You need to stop the server first before running the commands.
