Doubt with database

Type: How To

Description:
I’m new to using bitnami, I used the express installation of aws lighsail to create an instance with prestashop, everything seems to work fine, but I have doubts about a possible migration in the future, since I didn’t create any database at the time of installation , where is the database, and if you want to migrate to another non-bitnami host in the future this will be possible?

Hi @ronaldo.santos16

Thanks for using Bitnami Prestashop!

Your newly created stack comes with MariaDB pre-installed and has a database used by Prestashop. As with any MariaDB instance out there, you can perform any operation against it (such as backing up data, creating new users/entries, …) so yes, you totally can export its content at any time. For further information about the creation/restoration of backups, please refer to our documentation :slightly_smiling_face:

can you tell me how to create a zipped file from my prestashop folder?

You can find more details (including how to create a zip file of the application folder) in this guide :
