I setup a few monthes ago emoncms on a “test server” (an old thin client reconverted with ubuntu server). I have emoncms 9.9.9 on this one.
This server is for playing around, so as I want to setup now emoncms for long term use, I setup a new hardware (also a thin client reconverted with ubuntu server, but smaller and smaller consumption).
On this new device, I have emoncms Version: low-write 10.1.11
I struggled a while with the “backup” module, but I’m done with it… the documentation is very small and I was not able to make it work.
as I have only a few inputs and not so much fancy tuning…is there a chance that I could just copy paste database files from old server to new one ? I mean the directories /var/lib/php*
I assume I have to dump and import the emoncms table in mysql too ?
I have a couple of item I wonder about:
- where is stored my input/feeds settings ? if it’s in database, I assume it will follow ?
- I see in config file that mysql user / password seems different between my server.
in /var/www/emoncms/default.settings.php on old one and in /var/www/emoncms/settings.ini on new one.
Can I just update user/password from old device in config file of new one?
if some minor setting needs to be re done on new server, it’s not a big deal.
