===Backing Up the
IMSMANG contains several stores of information that can be backed up. By far, the most critical store is the IMSMANG database itself because it contains all of the active data in IMSMANG including published reports, form templates and geographic data in addition to the typical mine action information. IMSMANG’s Backup capability backs up the IMSMANG database by executing a MySQL database dump command that creates a complete backup of all of the data in the database including any additional tables, views and other customisations. The resulting dump.sql file, which is stored in a time-stamped directory for easy identification, includes the necessary commands to recreate the database with all of the existing data.
