Backing up Your Project

Follow the instructions below to create a backup of a help project.

1. Run HelpConsole 2008 to display the 'Manage Projects' form. Click here for more information about running the software

2. Click the help system project in the list that you wish to backup.

3. The selected help project will be opened in live mode.

4. Click the 'login' link, and then enter a username and password that has 'edit contents' and 'edit pages' permissions. By default, the 'admin' username does not have a pasword and has full permissions.

5. Click the tools button to show the 'Tools' menu.

6. Click 'Backup'

7. The help system project will be compressed into a single file. A link will appear indicating that the backup file was created successfully. Click the 'Click here to download..' link to download the backup file to your harddrive or your network.

8. When the 'File Download' form appears, click 'Save'

9. Next, specify a folder to save the backup file to.

10. This project backup can be restored at any time by clicking the 'Browse' button on the 'Manage Projects' form. For more information see Uploading a Project

Note: Because the backup feature compresses the help system project into a single file, the project can be moved around from Web Server to Web Server as desired. If nessesary the file can also be emailed to Extreme Ease technical support for troubleshooting.
