2.7. Step 7 - Save Encryption Keys

SavaPage creates the /opt/savapage/server/data/encryption.properties file at first installation. The encryption keys held in this file are used to store Encrypted Secrets and Document Signatures in the database.

Make a backup of this file now, and store it at a secure place, so you can restore it when you need to migrate to a new server.


The encryption.properties file is crucial for decrypting secret data in the database and verifying the authenticity of document signatures. When you lose this file you won't be able to use any database copy which was based on its encryption keys ever.
