Added by mostafa Kh 3 months ago

Hi
I searched my question but didnt find a clear answer.
I have a redmine 2.3.1 on windows 7 and now force to setup a new version of redmine on windows server 2016.
Please tell me how to backup or export existing data (all data) from old redmine and restore/import to new one.
Please note
1. Os is windows
2. I dont have old mysql root password. Just have redmine administrator pass
Please tell step by step.
Thanks all.

I'd recommend first resetting the root password (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-windows-excerpt/5.7/en/resetting-permissions-windows.html) so that you can take a full backup of the database.

On our installation of Redmine (Ubuntu) we have it installed to /opt/redmine, so in that directory I would attempt to keep at minimum these directories:

  • INSTALL_DIR\files
  • INSTALL_DIR\config

You may also wish to keep the INSTALL_DIR\logs directory as well for historical purposes.

I've never installed Redmine on a Windows system, so hopefully someone else with experience in that area will chime in and assist.
