This command clones an existing Database.

❗️ Warning: Consider using aptible backup:restore instead.

db:clone connects to your existing Database to copy data out and imports it into your new Database.

This means db:clone creates load on your existing Database, and can be slow or disruptive if you have a lot of data to copy. It might even fail if the new Database is underprovisioned, since this is a resource-intensive process.

This also means db:clone only works for a subset of Supported Databases (those that allow for convenient import / export of data).

In contrast, backup:restore instead uses a snapshot of your existing Database’s disk, which means it doesn’t affect your existing Database at all and supports all Aptible-supported Databases.
