Database Backup and Configuration

Feature Reserved for only Pro and Unlimited Plans

Loupp offers automated database backups, which can be scheduled directly from your server's Loupp dashboard. You have the flexibility to select one or more databases to back up at a defined frequency. Additionally, you can restore any of your recent backups as needed.

Supported Storage Providers

Loupp currently support the below storage providers:

  • Local

  • DigitalOcean Spaces

  • AWS S3

  • Custom (S3-Compatible)


The AWS IAM user provided must possess the following permissions for S3:

  • s3:GetObject

  • s3:PutObject

  • s3:ListBucket

  • s3:DeleteObject

Ensure that these permissions are correctly configured to allow the IAM user to perform the necessary actions with S3.

For Custom

When configuring a custom S3-compatible provider, you need to provide the following information:

  • Name of the Storage Bucket: This is the name of the storage container where your data will be stored.

  • Service Endpoint / URL: This is the endpoint or URL used to access the S3-compatible storage service. It typically follows a format like or

  • Access and Secret Keys: These are the credentials used to authenticate with the S3-compatible storage service.

When setting up the connection to the custom S3-compatible provider, you'll need to input these details into the configuration settings of your application or service.


Loupp offers 2 backup frequency options:

  • Daily (with selected hour)

  • Weekly (with selected date)

Creating a backup configuration

To create a database backup configuration for your server, first you have to create it in your settings and then link it to your server.

How to create a backup configuration​.

To link it the created configuration, visit the database backup tap under your server and select add configuration, then you can specify frequency, databases and folder (optional)

Backup Retention

Loupp automates the pruning of old backups. For instance, if you set a backup retention rate of "five", only the most recent five backups will be retained within your storage provider.

Backup Restoration

To restore backups to your database, navigate to the Backup History tab under the server dashboard and click the Restore button next to your preferred backup. The backups will be restored to the database they originated from.

Backup Deletion

You can delete backups individually, doing this would delete the archives from your storage provider too.
