How should DAppNode data be backed up


DAppNode currently doesn’t officially support a full backup of the whole system, but there are some useful tips in case of a potential failure:

  • It is actually pretty hardcore to copy the whole blockchain and might as well sync it from scratch.

  • You can use the backup function of every package you want, to download it manually from time to time in case you need to restore the package in a new DAppNode

  • Be very careful choosing a safe place to download or store the backups!

    • They may contain sensitive data - In case of Prysm package, it even contains the validator key.
    • It might also be better to re-generate from your mnemonic - or just make sure you keep it safe
