Data Directory Documentation

Hello, I’m wondering if there’s documentation available for the Teleport data directory located in /var/lib/teleport. Specifically, what do the backend, cache, log and proc directories represent?

I am looking to backup my teleport authentication settings, especially the user data and I’m wondering what I should back up. For example, if my server fails, what files should I put back so that user accounts are restored?

The backend and cache directories contain SQLite databases - backend holds users authentication and auth server data while cache holds details of connected nodes, proxies and trusted clusters.

log contains logs, as you’d expect.

The generally accepted procedure for backing up a Teleport installation using local file system storage is to copy the entire contents of /var/lib/teleport.
