We are currently running Openfire v3.5.2 using a MS SQL database on an external server.
We need to move the Openfire installation to a new server and also migrate the db from a SQL2000 server to a SQL2005 server and also would like to upgrade to Openfire v3.6.3
Can someone please confirm the correct process for this? I have been looking around the forum but am still not 100% sure as the new servers will have different names.
So far I assume that the correct process is something as follows:
1 - Install Openfire 3.5.2 on new server
2 - Copy Openfire program files directory from old server to new server to retain config?? I believe that there is a xml file with the server name that needs to be changed
3 - Backup & restore Openfire db to new SQL Server
4 - Edit Openfire xml to point to new SQL server
5 - Test Openfire is working
6 - Upgrade to Openfire 3.6.3
Any help/advice would be appreciated
