Hi Krupesh, First of all thank for replying, the link which you suggested gives solution with respect to the script and backup (storing in dump), the error which im getting is in the web browzer. my scenario here is i have a EC2 instance and also RDS connected to it. I am not able to take a back up from the web Browzer of odoo database manager. Please guide me, i need to download the file that is the backup to my local system.
