    1010To create a backup of a live TracEnvironment, simply run: 
    1111{{{ 
     12 
    1213  $ trac-admin /path/to/projenv hotcopy /path/to/backupdir 
     14 
    1315}}} 
    1416 
     
    1719The resulting backup directory is safe to handle using standard file-based backup tools like `tar` or `dump`/`restore`. 
    1820 
     21Please, note, that hotcopy command does not overwrite target directory and when such exists, hotcopy ends with error: `Command failed: [Errno 17] File exists:` This is discussed in [trac:ticket:3198 #3198].

    1923=== Restoring a Backup === 
    2024 
    2125Backups are simply a copied snapshot of the entire [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory, including the SQLite database.  
    2226 
    23 To restore an environment from a backup, simply stop the process running Trac (i.e. the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd]), restore the directory structure from the backup and restart the service. 
     27To restore an environment from a backup, stop the process running Trac (i.e. the Web server or [wiki:TracStandalone tracd]), restore the contents of your backup (path/to/backupdir) to your [wiki:TracEnvironment project environment] directory and restart the service. 
    2428 
    2529  ''Note: Automatic backup of environments that don't use SQLite as database backend is not supported at this time. As a workaround, we recommend that you stop the server, copy the environment directory, and make a backup of the database using whatever mechanism is provided by the database system.''
