Restoration of Openbravo Environment

All of us depend on backup most of the time. Thats one side-effect of innovative product development. Sometimes when our imagination unfolds in the form of thousands of ideas, the first thing that suffers is the application coz its new for it and the last thing is you coz u got to restore it..:) Sometimes we do development in one environment and recreate the environment elsewhere. I will present how I did it for Openbravo in ubuntu. Openbravo in ubuntu has two parts. One if the folder structure and the other of course is the database. I use postgres as database because of the simple reason that its free. So the first step is i need a backup or a dump of the database. If you have pgadmin installed this is a easier task. Just right click on your database, and choose backup. In the options that present before you, choose the plain option. This option is to create a backup in plain text format that you can see. You can almost sense whats there in that dump with the plain format backup.
