Restoring database

I’ve been trying to restore an event store database following the instructions here but when I spin up ES it just looks like a fresh install with the default admin user and no streams or projections.

Anyone had any luck restoring a backup or have any pointers?

Just trying to rule out the obvious and making sure you are telling Event Store where to find your restored database.


If the transaction files is located in c:/dbs/your-backup

You need to tell Event Store to look there

EventStore.ClusterNode.exe --db=c:/dbs/your-backup

I’ve put the config.yml file back in the ES exe directory so it should be pointing to all the same file locations

Are you telling Event Store to use that particular config file by specifying --config=config.yaml as part of the startup options?

Ahh yup that was it! Thanks
