I don’t think there is a way to download a backup from the control panel. What you can do is manually backup the database once a day via script and transfer it on a remote server.
Backups are handled automatically and included to you at no additional fee. Full backups are taken every day and write-ahead-logs are maintained to allow you to restore to any point-in-time during the retention period.
You can check our official Docs for the Managed PosfreSQL Database here:
And check the tutorial on how to restore a PostgreSQL cluster from Backups:
A command similar to the following should allow you to dump all the data from your remote PostgreSQL database to a single dump file:
- pg_dump -h use_your_host -U use_your_username -Fc use_your_dbname > dbdump.pgsql
You can restore a dump file to the default database and user by running a command similar to this:
- pg_restore -d 'use_your_connnectionURI' --jobs 4 use_your_dump_file
We cover both importing and exporting databases more detail in our product documentation for our managed databases (PostgreSQL):
