How to backup your SQL Database using Helm Control

STEP 1:

Login into Helm Control



From there select My Domains



Next pick the domain where you have a database in use. Here is an example



Then choose My Little Admin which is the portal to your SQL Server database



And then click Login into My Little Admin



Next you should be presented with this screen:



Complete your database name, login and password - Please note these will be different, so you need to know what they are Wink

Once you've logged in select Tools



And then choose Backup Database within your management folder



You may be presented with another screen but again choose Backup Database



Now select Choose Database - and you have a drop down box. Choose the database you want to back up



When you've done that it will automatically advance to this:



Click OK and then give your database a name and the details you want. Examples could be:
Name - IDONTCARE
Description - 10112008 (something simple like the date you did it Wink



Once you have your backup file



You can download it safely to your hard drive. You can repeat this step as often as you prefer

Hmmm....Is it just me or are these instructions no longer correct? Aren't you guys using DotNetPanel now? Or is there still access to Helm somewhere I'm missing...

Hi Dave
The subject was correct at the time when people were using the Helm Control Panel. I have now updated the post title to reflect this, and will post a new topic for Dot Net Panel users Wink

Yes we are using DotNetPanel for our new Windows 2008 hosting accounts, but many of our customers are still using Helm on the older accounts.

The instructions are much the same with the accounts that use DotNetPanel as you would use the same MyLittleAdmin and MyLittleBackup tools to backup and restore databases.
