Unzip the BackupMyOrg-x.x.zip archive into the desired directory
In the unzipped /installs folder, install MongoDB
Be sure to keep the checkbox to allow MongoDB to be run as a service
You can uncheck the install option for installing Compass if desired
Once MongoDB has been installed, you can go to the config/nodeconfig.json file to change any server settings before running. Here you can change settings for:
The port that will be used
Using HTTP or HTTPS
Whether or not login credentials will be used
Default admin email
Level of server logs
Log size max
Whether resolution options will be allowed from the app
BackupMyOrg is ready to run. In the main unzipped folder, click on Backupmyorg.exe. This will launch the BackupMyOrg server application. Closing the app or shutting down your computer during a scan will cause the scan to fail. In order to use the ‘Scheduled Backup’ functionality, Backup My Org must always run in the background.
Once the app is running in the background, open a web browser and type http://localhost:8500 into your url bar.
(NOTE: For convenience, there is also a bmolocal.bat file that can be run in the same directory. This will start the BackupMyOrg.exe server, then open a Chrome browser to http://localhost:8500. This file can be copied as a shortcut and placed on your desktop.)
NOTE:If you have installed BackupMyOrg in your program files directory, and get this permissions issue, that means the program files needs elevated permissions, this error should not occur if installed in another directory outside program files.
