I there anything built into Ignition to be able to set it up to do automatic back ups? And how would you back up the modules, or do you even have to?
You can find the gateway backup settings on the gateway settings page. You will be looking at the scheduled backup settings. As for the modules, I assume your talking about the installed modules that you installed with Ignition. These do not need to be backed up.
As of 7.5, there is also a way to call the GCU on the command line to create backups. It is run like so (in a command shell):
gwcmd -b mybackup.gwbk
This allows you to make backups on demand via a shell script.
Got it. Thanks for the help. I found the spot in gateway settings to set it up. Works good.
