Encryption

Your backups can be automatically encrypted using the industry standard AES-256 encryption algorithm with a SHA256 message digest when you set an encryption key in the Database settings section. Amezmo uses OpenSSL to encrypt your backups.

Recommended decryption command

The following command is the recommended way to portably decrypt your backup files. After downloading your backup file, this command should be run on your local machine.


openssl enc -aes-256-cbc -md sha256 -d \
    -pass pass:$YOUR_ENCRYPTION_KEY \
    -in $DATABASE_BACKUP_FILE
