Migrate BOE installation to new server after server dies

12 Views

BOE 1.3 fixpack 1.8 on linux

We had BOE running on one server which died.

I installed BOE on another server, using the mysql database just to get it up and running.

The plan was then simply to use the cmsdbsetup utility to change over to our real database, so we did that and then when we try to start BOE up, it for some reason tries to alter the tables and such, our db doesn't allow that so it generates errors, boe then shuts itself down.

So I have an existing database with all my settings and such just like I want them, how can I get this new instance of boe using them.
