I am going to change my server’s (Openfire 3.4.3) domain name, from server.somedomain.com to server.anotherdomain.com .I will also probably move the openfire server from one PC to another … could you please tell me if these steps are correct ? (i am using mysql for database)
Back-up my database
Copy the database to the new server
Move the server to the new PC (actually copy all the files there)
There’s a plugin that lets you extract all of your clients and their rosters to an XML file. You could export that and then do a search replace all for the domain names then import it on thenew server. I’ve been thinking about this too since we’re going from 9 seperate domains to one in thenear future.
it makes much more sense to change the domain to email@example.com so it matches the email address. Anyhow you need to set up SRV DNS records to do this.
As you are migrating from beta I assume that the beta users do not have external contacts. You can either use the import / export plugin or change all occurrences of old.domain in the database to new.domain - and there are a lot.
