CopyStorm Directory Structure

Upgrading CopyStorm can be a simple 30 second task if installed using a specific directory configuration.

The directory structure we recommend for a CopyStorm installation looks like the following:

  • CopyStorm
    • Created by unzipping the CopyStorm download (see the Installation Instructions).
  • CopyStormConfig
    • ProductionA
      • ProductionA.copyStorm
        • CopyStorm configuration file for backing up the ProductionA Salesforce.
      • ProductionALessFrequent.copyStorm
        • CopyStorm configuration file for backing up the ProductionA Salesforce. This configuration file may backup Salesforce tables that are more expensive to backup (examples: Attachment, ContentVersion).
      • ProductionA.copyStormMedic
        • CopyStorm/Medic configuration file for maintaining the ProductionA Salesforce backup.
      • config
        • XML configuration files used by CopyStorm when backing up the ProductionA Salesforce.
    • ProductionB
      • ProductionB.copyStorm
        • CopyStorm configuraiton file for backing up the ProductionB Salesforce.
      • config
        • XML configuration files used by CopyStorm when backing up the ProductionB Salesforce.

In other words:

  • Create a directory next to the CopyStorm installation called CopyStormConfig to hold all of your site specific configurations and customizations.
  • Create a separate subdirectory under CopyStormConfig for each SalesForce instance to be backed up.

If you are managing your own job scheduling rather than using CopyStorm/Director then the BAT or sh files used to run your scheduled jobs should be stored with their respective CopyStorm configuration files. If you are using CopyStorm/Director the CopyStormConfig directory works perfectly for configuring CopyStorm/Director.

Upgrading CopyStorm to a new version

If CopyStorm is installed using the directory structure detailed above, this process will upgrade the installation to a new version:

  1. Remove or rename the CopyStorm directory.
  2. Unzip the new CopyStorm release in the same location as the old CopyStorm directory.

This process should end with a replacement CopyStorm directory containing an upgraded version of the CopyStorm software.
