Documentation about how to backup/restore #606
Problem you are facing
I would like to backup the current state, and am not sure how to find all 'state' of pretalx, nor how I would go about restoring from it.
Document this some place.
The current documentation states in multiple places that backups are a good idea (and they obviously are), e.g.:
"you should have a backup of the state before the command run", e.g.:
"While we try hard not to issue breaking updates, please perform a backup before every upgrade."
What I couldn't find is a description of how to do this, except maybe to backup the whole machine. I am a beginning pretalx user, not a developer. So while I installed pretalx and because of that know it uses a DB as backend, I do not know if a backup of the database would be sufficient, or if there is 'state' saved elsewhere as well, and where that all would be, and how to best backup that.
So, I think it would be a good idea to describe how to actually backup the data within a pretalx installation, and in the same document also, how to restore from such a backup.
