Migration from one server to another

Postby nfeasey » Thu Oct 20, 2005 9:04 am

We are currently testing OJS a one server and are getting ready to go live.
I need to move the ojs database from one server to another.

Is there an FAQ or document that describes how this is done or is it merely a matter of moving the database from one mySQL server to another.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello nfeasey,

To move an OJS 2.x installation from one server to another:
  • Move the database using whatever server administration toolset (e.g. mysqldump) you like; no special steps are required.
  • Move the OJS installation directory
  • Move the OJS files directory (its location is configured in config.inc.php)
  • Move the OJS public directory (its location is configured in config.inc.php)
  • Update the locations of the files and public directories in config.inc.php, if required
  • Update the base_url in config.inc.php, if required

Ensure that you maintain file attributes when moving the various directories and files.

Regards,

Ok then, as I suspected, it is very straight forward.

Thanks!
