How to back up a MongoDB database?

Mongo Clusters takes system backups automatically on a daily basis. For detailed information about how to back up a database manually, please find steps below:

1. Find the target MongoDB deployment

Log in to the Control Panel and locate your target application from all applications listed.

2. Navigate to the Backup page

Click on the “Snapshots” tab, then you will be shown a list of backup files. A “TAKE SNAPSHOT” button on the buttom allows you to manually back up your data, which will be a full backup of the whole system.

P.S. Please be advised that the download of snapshots is not available in the control panel. If you need a copy of your backup files, you can open a ticket asking for it.
