Mikrotik Configuration Backup

In this article, I’ll teach you how to Mikrotik Configuration Backup using MKController, making it easy and simple, streamlining the lives of network administrators and internet service providers.

Performing backups in a network is an essential process for security and administration, whether to prevent hardware failures, software bugs, unexpected power outages, or human errors.

On the MKController platform, two options are available: binary backup (used only to recover the RB itself) and Mikrotik configuration backup. In both options, the latest backups will be stored in the cloud, available for use after logging into the platform.

With the Mikrotik configuration file, you can not only restore the RB itself but also use it on other devices and utilize the “Mass Update on Mikrotiks” feature through MKController.

Now, follow the steps below to back up Mikrotik configurations after downloading the file.
