Newbie question


I’m new to psql and I have some dumb questions:

I ran a backup and everything went fine. The version of the server is 9.5.4. I see in the log that the dumps is from 11.1? Does It matter?

An other question: Can the backup can run if the client uses the database at the same time without issues?


Here’s the log:

  • 14:09:05 : Backing up “localhost” databases with pg_dump.exe: pg_dump (PostgreSQL) 11.1

Hi Vincent,

  1. That is the version of pg_dump tool which is used by SQLBackupAndFTP, but not the server’s version.

  2. Backup performing will not affect connected users.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Hello, Just another newbie down here.
Is it necessary to keep the program loaded (opened)to perform scheduled backups?
Or I can just close the program and it will work behind curtains?

Hi Christian_Alvear,

Yes, you can set a backup job and close the app. The backups will be performed in the background according to the selected schedule.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

Thank you!
