Click Application Settings from the System section in the Setup menu in Variphy.

This will load the Application Settings page.

If either of the directory values are different than these defaults, note the directory locations as you will need them in Step 3) below.

Step 2) Shutdown the Variphy Application

SSH to the Variphy server and then CD to the Variphy Insight installation location:

cd /opt/variphy/apps/insight

Run the following command to stop the Variphy service:

sudo sh variphy stop

when prompted, enter the sudo password

Step 3) Copy the following folders and contents, if they exist, from the ‘Variphy Insight’ install directory to another location, as this is where the data and settings are stored.  

Not all folders may exist, in which case, they can be skipped.

  • db
  • license
  • logos
  • logs
  • phone-macro-screenshots
