2.10.2. Start the Server with a Previous Configuration

The following example shows how to start the application server with a previous configuration in a standalone server with standalone.xml. The same concept applies to a managed domain with domain.xml and host.xml respectively.
This example recalls a previous configuration saved automatically by the application server as management operations modify the server model.
  1. Identify the backed up version that you want to start. This example will recall the instance of the server model prior to the first modification after successfully booting up.
    EAP_HOME/configuration/standalone_xml_history/current/standalone.v1.xml 
  2. Start the server with this instance of the backed up model by passing in the relative filename under jboss.server.config.dir.
    EAP_HOME/bin/standalone.sh --server-config=standalone_xml_history/current/standalone.v1.xml 
Result

The application server starts with the selected configuration.
