Migrating from a Bitnami Stack to a Fresh install

Added by David Litz over 6 years ago

Looking for current suggestions on migrating from a Bitnami Stack to a new fresh install.

I'm currently running the Bitnami Redmine Stack Version: 0.8.6-0

It currently uses http://redmine.mydomainname.local for access.

I would like to be able to keep the same internal / external IP address and sub-domain once its all said and done.

I have renamed the new server redmine2.mydomainname.local

I have installed a fresh CentOS release 6.4 with a basic Redmine up and running.

I've gone through most, if not all of the tutorials listed on this site and over at Bitnami...however I'm having issues as most, if not all are a bit dated.

Thanks.

For the data, dump the DB and scp the files and repos and you should be fine.
What specific problems do you have with your fresh install?

I was following this here

http://bitnami.com/forums/forums/redmine/topics/fresh-install-of-rs-redmine-how-to-bring-old-db-across

Of course changing the path and naming.

when I do the rack part...it fails.

I used this one to setup the new server

This is all functioning just fine with the default database.

Could you paste the command and error?

Thanks...

This is what I get

[root@redmine2 redmine]# rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=“production”
There was an error in your Gemfile, and Bundler cannot continue.
[root@redmine2 redmine]#

I also attached a text file that shows what appears on the web page http://redmine2.iss.local

Maybe your Gemfile is corrupted.
Download a new copy of it:

cd /var/www/redmine
rm Gemfile
wget http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/repository/raw/tags/2.3.3/Gemfile

Cheers,
