Need to download backup, backup table is empty

Hi there,

I need to download backup by the table is empty, I tried to make bench update through terminal but it gave this error:

Usage: bench backup [OPTIONS] SITE

Error: Missing argument “site”.



you will need to add your site name to take the backup. To get the site name you can check the /sites directory or check /sites/currentsite.txt file

e.g. bench backup your_site_name

Hi makarand,
