Learn How To Easily Backup And Restore An Encrypted InterBase Database

In this CodeRage session, you can learn how to backup and restore encrypted databases in InterBase. 


  • Backing up the encrypted database
  • Restore encrypted database

How can I backup and restore an encrypted database? Here are the steps that you can follow:

  • In IBConsole you can right-click on the database, with the context menu, you can open the Backup/Restore section, and if your database is already encrypted you need a SEP password to be able to backup or restore the database. 
  • IBConsole supplies a default name for the backup file. So to overwrite that you can click on the Browse button and change the name of the backup file.
  • And it creates .gbk or .ibk file for you.
  • To restore that database you can again select the database that you want and with the context menu, you can fire the Restore function.
  • Then you can give the file location.
  • And in the Database area, you can recreate or create a brand-new database using this file in the restore.

Be sure to watch the session to see the steps in action!
