To create a database export from your production site, simply run:
sail db export
This will perform a new database dump on your production server, compress it
and download it to your local
.backups directory. To view all available
database backups in your local working copy, simply run:
cd /path/to/project ls -lh .backups
Note that the database backups well have the
.sql.gz extension, while the
full site backups will have a
.tar.gz extension. To import a
database backup to your production server run
sail db import. You can learn
more about it here.
If you're having trouble with importing/exporting database files with Sail, please refer to our getting help section.
