View Full Version : Can't backup database

07-09-2011, 04:08 PM
When I try to backup my HoldemManager database to move it to a new computer I get this error...

[7/9/2011 2:53 PM] holdemmanager: error: pg_dump: server version: 9.0.3; pg_dump version: 8.4.1
pg_dump: aborting because of server version mismatch

[7/9/2011 2:53 PM] error: error backup up holdemmanager

I seem to have both versions of Postgres installed on my computer. I think the Holdem Manager uses version 9 database.

I tried to go into pgAdminIII to manually backup, but the backup is not the same file type as holdemmanager uses to restore databases.

Can you explain a fix for this or a way to manually backup the database?

The backup & restore utility will only support 8.4.x.

So use pgadminIII instead. And also restore the backup in pgadminIII: http://faq.holdemmanager.com/questions/72/Backup%26RestoreDatabase
