How to migrate and update to new server?

Added by Martin Bächtold over 10 years ago

Hi there

I have an installation of Redmine 0.7.3 successfully up and running for a while. Now I want to migrate this installation to a new server.
On the new server I will make use of subversion in order to stay up-to-date.
Now I was wondering how to do this and came up with the following procedure:

- On the new server, check out 0.7.3 from subversion and set it up
- Copy files/attachements/etc. from the old server to the new server
- Export MySQL-Data from the old server an import it in the new server
- Upgrade Redmine on the new server using subversion

What do you think about that? Is there an easier way to do this?

Thank you in advance
