tklbam-restore never completes

jonathan_2's picture

I have a 10.3 Gb tklbam backup created in a moodle turnkey vm that won't restore to a EC2 cloud server. I've tried both restoring to a new cloud server and creating a new server and the initiating the backup. I've let the restore run up to 72 hours without success.

I'm new to tklbam, so hopefully its something I'm missing.

Each time the restore seems to stall at:

Known issue with large backups

With a confirmed workaround. Hope that solves your issue.

After the work around...

Thanks for the help. After the workaround, I'm still stalling out (1 hour plus) at...

Not really sure

Sorry I'm not sure what's going on... Have you double checked that it hasn't actually done it's job and restored all your data? That's what it's suggesting...

If that still isn't working perhaps you could try a fresh instance (if you haven't already tried that)?

If you continue to have issue then I suggest you contact the TKL core devs via the Hub 'feedback' feature (blue button on the left hand side when logged in).

Added fix to Hub that mount --binds /tmp to instance storage

You don't need to mount --bind /tmp to instance storage any more. The Hub now does this for you.
