Hi Raphael, Please follow the following document when backing up. The doc you followed is out of date. https://gluu.org/docs/ce/3.1.6/operation/backup/#opendj It should also walk you through your other question on this [ticket](https://support.gluu.org/upgrade/6988/backup-question/) Thanks, Mohammad Abudayyeh

Hi, Sorry, but in your documentation you haven't the `online` backup solution. I'm in version 3.1.3.1 May you give me an `online` solution for this version please? It's not possible to perform `online` backup in version 3.1.6? Thanks

Hi, The on-line backup version is not recommended in any version. We prefer the off-line method. Please set hours during night or weekends and preform the backup as shown in the doc provided. It has been tested. It should not take you a long time to do so. Also validation and indexing is also shown in the case you have issues with your indexes. Thanks.

It's ok for me. I had to use /tmp/backup_o_gluu_data.ldif Instead of /backups/backup_o_gluu_data.ldif Permission issue Thank you
