Complete manual backup?

I need to reinstall BlueCherry server, but I don’t want to lose my recordings.
I found the database backup option in the web ui, but it doesn’t seem to like the database password. That password was copied ‘n’ pasted direct from /etc/bluecherry.conf . No dice.

FWIW, I’m running version 3.0.4 on Ubuntu server 20.04.2

mysqldump -uUSER -pPASSWORD bluecherry >> Bluecherry-03-29-2021.dump

The mysql database backup problem is a known bug, should be fixed in 3.0.5. For now you can run the command above to save the database.
