Database Backup

Michel Feinstein
Hi guys,

I am about to take down a database, so I want to make a backup before, in case I need to turn it on again in the future. Are there any caveats I should be aware of, when using pgAdmin for the backup?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Michel,

pgAdmin4 does not take backup by itself but uses pg_dump in backend, It just provides GUI interface for pg_dump utility for taking backups.
Please refer the pg_dump documentation if you require any specific details on backup process.
