Frequently Asked QuestionsEdit this page
- Why do we have to specify the
--stanzaoption even if only one stanza is defined in the configuration file?
Except for the repository specific commands (
--stanza option is required so that adding a stanza does not cause the commands that did not have a stanza specified to suddenly throw errors because they do not know which stanza to use.
- Is it possible to only restore a specific database from a complete database cluster backup?
The databases that are not explicitly included with this option will be restored as sparse, zeroed files to save space; however, it still allows PostgreSQL to perform the recovery using less disk space. You can then remove these databases with the
DROP DATABASE command since they will no longer be accessible.
