Solving failing manual backup and restore operations

Manual SQL backup and restore fails


When creating or restoring backup manually (i.e. via SQL Administration tools such as pgAdmin, or directly via SQL commands), some errors may occur.


These issues are caused by using pg_dump and pg_restore versions that are not compatible with PostgreSQL 16 (on which Serverless SQL Databases rely).


To solve these issues, upgrade your pg_dump and/or pg_restore modules:

  • You can upgrade them by installing PostgreSQL 16 which includes these tools.
  • If you are using a third-party tool that includes these libraries, upgrade your tool. For instance, pgAdmin supports PostgreSQL 16 ecosystem from version 7.8.
