[solved] advices wanted for new install with old data (from redmine 212)

Added by simo geo 7 months ago

Hi all,

I was working with redmine 212 till I recently had a crash disk !

I'm no building a new infrastructure. I want to deploy again redmine and load back all my data.
I guess this will not be a big problem for documents but I'm more sceptical regarding database.

My question is : how should I do ? Can I install the last version and provide my old database parameters (what about structure update ?)

Or should I better install the old redmine 212 version and then updgrade it ?

Thanks for answering !

did it work fine?

the safest way would probably be to install the same version that you had, replace the database with your old data, then upgrade the whole system to the newer version if you wanted to.
