Zoho Creator On-Premise server commands

Below are the commands you’ll need to start and shutdown the Zoho Creator On-Premise server, and backup and restore its database.

Server commands for Linux

You’ll first have to navigate to the installed_folder/Creator/bin/ via terminal.

  • To start the server: sh app_ctl.sh run
  • To shut down the server: sh app_ctl.sh shutdown
  • To back up the database: sh backupDB.sh -p password
    • You can protect the backup with a password. If you don't set one, the password is automatically set with the file name in reverse (without the extension). For example, if the name is OfflineBackup_20200703171838.ezip then its default password will be 83817130700202_pukcaBenilffO.
    • The database backup will be saved in the SERVER_HOME/Backup folder. Its extension will be ezip.
    • You can back up the database only when the server is offline.
  • To restore a backup: sh restoreDB.sh filename_with_path -p password, for example,
    sh restoreDB.sh ../Backup/OfflineBackup_20200703171838.ezip -p 83817130700202_pukcaBenilffO
    • The password is mandatory when you're restoring a backup.
    • The backup taken in a version cannot be restored in another version.
    • If the restore fails, please contact onprem-support@zohocreator.com
