View Composer recovery

The same process is used to recover or move View Composer to a new host server. To retain the current settings, all that needs to be restored is the View Composer database and the RSA key container or custom SSL certificate.

Restoring the View Composer database

The View Composer database should be restored using the native View command-line tool sviconfig.exe. This tool is located within the install directory of View Composer, which is at the following location on our sample server:
