stardog-admin [ --krb5 ] [ --krb5-disable-rdns ] [ --server <server url> ] db restore [ {-n | --name} <new name> ] [ {-o | --overwrite} ] [ {-p | --passwd} <password> ] [ {-P | --ask-password} ] [ --run-as <username> ] [ {-u | --username} <username> ] [ {-v | --verbose} ] [--] <backup location>


Name, shorthand Description
--krb5 Use the Kerberos environment.
--krb5-disable-rdns Disable reverse DNS lookup for Kerberos clients.
-n <new name>, --name <new name> Specify a new name for the restored database
-o, --overwrite If the database being restored already exists, overwrite the existing copy with the restored version
-p <password>, --passwd <password> Password.
-P, --ask-password Prompt for password.
--run-as <username> User to impersonate when running the command
--server <server url> URL of Stardog Server. If this option isn’t specified, it will be read from JVM argument ‘stardog.default.cli.server’. If the JVM arg isn’t set, the default value ‘http://localhost:5820’ is used. If server URL has no explicit port value, the default port value ‘5820’ is used. Example: ‘stardog-admin –server server stop’
-u <username>, --username <username> User name.
-v, --verbose Flag that can cause more detailed information to be printed such as errors and status. Exact output depends upon the command and options used.
-- This option can be used to separate command-line options from the list of argument(s). (Useful when an argument might be mistaken for a command-line option)
<backup location> The full path on disk or the URL of the backup to restore


Restores a database from its backup. The location of the backup should be the full path to the backup, not the location of the backup directory as specified in your Stardog configuration. By default, the name of a database is saved in its backup, so there is no need to specify a name for the restored database. However, if you wish to restore the backup to a different database, a new name can be provided, which must be unique. A backup will not be restored over an existing database of the same name, to force an overwrite using the restored database, use the -o/–overwrite flag. You cannot overwrite and specify a new name. If overwrite is not specified, and a new name is not provided, and a database with the name of the database to be restored already exists, the restore operation will not succeed. In the cluster this command can only be used for file-based backups if there is a single node. It cannot be used for file-based backups in clusters with more than 1 node.


Restore a database from its backup:

    $ stardog-admin db restore $STARDOG_HOME/.backup/myDb/2012-06-21

Restore a database to a new copy:

    $ stardog-admin db restore --name restoredMyDb $STARDOG_HOME/.backup/myDb/2012-06-21
