Demo Site is a simple module that allows you to take a snapshot of a Backdrop
demonstration site. It turns a Drupal installation into a sandbox that you can
use for testing modules or publicly demonstrating a module / extension / theme
(you name it). In short: With cron enabled, the Drupal site will be reset to
the dumped state in a definable interval. Of course you can reset the site
manually, too.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at

  • Visit the configuration page under Administration > Structure > Snapshots (admin/structure/demo) and enter the required information.



  • Configure the path where dumps will be stored at the Dump settings

To configure automatic reset:

  • Go to Manage snapshots (admin/structure/demo/manage) and select a snapshot
    for cron.

  • Enable atomatic reset from Dump settings (admin/structure/demo). Make sure you
    have cron configured to run at least once within the entered time interval.

  • After a while, reset your site (admin/structure/demo/reset).
