Does anyone know how to backup your controller config? I have templates saved my my WCS. Would sending the template out be the same thing as as restoring a backup of the config?

You can either go under the scheduled tasks in WCS and setup automatic backups or you could go onto the controller under Commands - Upload Files and upload the config off of the controller to a TFTP server.

It looks like it has been backing them up. Where can I find the config files it has backed up?

Usually it will be in the default FTP directory for WCS.

If it is 6.x you can check here for that directory:

Administration > Settings > Server Settings

I located the config files. It is only 16 KB. Does that sound right?

It was in the tftp directory wasn't it?  I think I mistyped.

Mine are about 80k but I guess they could be that small.
