Because FortiWeb requires your X.509 certificates to protect HTTPS transactions, when you back up your FortiWeb configuration, make sure that you select a backup type that includes the certificates. If the FortiWeb hardware fails, having backed-up certificates minimizes the time required to reconfigure a replacement appliance.
|To further guarantee service uptime from the perspective of your clients, deploy your FortiWeb in HA. For details, see FortiWeb high availability (HA) .|
For information on the different backup methods and the backup options that include certificates, see Backup & restore.
