Excerpt of article text...

In the last two columns we discussed backing up a PostgreSQL database. In this column we will be discussing the options you have for restoring.

As in the previous columns, I will continue to remind everyone that you have not successfully implemented a backup strategy if you have not actually tested the backup (i.e. performed a restore with it). Also, should you see a conflict with whatever I might have written and the official PostgreSQL documentation, then you should absolutely trust the documentation! The flip side to that coin is that regardless of what the documentation says, test your backups!

In the previous two columns we have touched on the two main ways to restore a PostgreSQL database: 1) from a SQL file created by pg_dump and 2) from a binary file also created by pg_dump.

As a reminder, here is the command to restore a PostgreSQL database from a SQL text file that has been created by pg_dump:

psql -d chinook_restore -f chinook_bu.sql
