For backups:

(As for backups: it is generally very important to have a valid backup in place. Without a valid daily backup, your metadata

are at risk should a restore ever become necessary. The link will provide you with all important information you'd need to know.)

Hello @CesarFreitas

You can refer to this guide for software updates:

It's always advisable to backup config folders before any upgrade/Changes on all the machines In order to restore.

Thanks!
