Creating and Restoring Policy Backups

Before you edit the policy, or after you have successfully tested a policy change, you should back up the policy. If necessary, you can restore a backed up version of the policy.

To create a new policy backup:

On the sidebar of the Rules page (the default page of the Policy tab), click Create beside Backups.

An information message is displayed indicating that the backup was created, and a new sidebar entry appears in the Backups section named with the current date and time.
Note
Only the five most recent backups are kept. If you create a sixth, the oldest backup is automatically deleted.

To restore a policy backup:

  1. On the sidebar of the Rules page (the default page of the Policy tab), click the policy backup that you want to restore.

    An information message appears, asking if you want to restore the selected policy backup. You can click Diff to see a summary of the differences between the selected backup and the current policy to confirm that it is the backup that you want to restore.

  2. Click OK.

    You are returned to the Rules page, where a message displayed at the top of the page stating that "The backup has been successfully restored."

  3. Click Restart now at the top of the page to restart the Milter (Policy) service.
