Subject Re: Backing up a repository
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2007 00:11:09 GMT
This would be nice to be able to just backup the database, but I don't think
it can work that way in the general case because in the repository folder is
information about versions, custom node types, namespaces etc.

Would someone in the know please comment on whether or not this approach
works/is a good practice?

Thanks in advance,

Mark
