This documentation describes how to perform the backup and restoration operations of a TraefikEE cluster in Swarm. For a general introduction of the backup and restore mechanism, we suggest reading the introduction first.
In order to perform those operations, you will need to use
traefikeectl. To set it up, please refer to the manual installation guide

If you need to, TraefikEE also supports creating
