Migrate server

Hello there!!!

I´d like to know how to migrate my server from a machine to another.

I´m running it under windows.

If you are running openfire on the same OS (windows of some flavor) on the new computer:

  1. Stop the openfire server on the current box
  2. Copy the entire Openfire directory from the program files folder to transfer media (CD, Flash drive, etc)
  3. Install the same version of Openfire on the new computer (do not start it)
  4. Copy backup of Openfire from old computer to this computer replacing entire directory

Bear in mind this only works if the coputers/openfire server are going to have the same DNS name.

what about the database?
