Hello, I want to use the production’s data in acceptance. For it, I downloaded the database only backup from production (its size is approximately 280 MB) and then uploaded it in acceptance. But, after it is uploaded, when I see the details of the uploaded backup, the size in the ‘Snapshot Size Uncompressed (MB)’ field comes as 0.00. I wanted to ask that is it the right method to upload a backup and after it is uploaded correctly, how can we use it in acceptance? Thank you.
You can restore a production database backup directly to your acceptance environment. Follow these steps:
stop your acceptance environment
open the Backups page and ensure you have the Production environment selected
select the database backup you want to use in the list of production backups and click the Restore Backup button
in the dialog box that pops up, choose the Acceptance environment and then click the Restore Backup button
You will see a message in the Backups Activity at the bottom of this page indicating that the restore has started, and a separate message when the restore has completed
Start your acceptance environment to use the new data
