Switching to new server - db migration?

Hi,

We are looking to move our TC3.1.2 to a new box and then upgrade it to TC5.


In terms of moving to the new box, I have tried copying the existing installation across, but that is not working.

I see there is a DB export/import tool - so it seems thats the way to go , export on the old server, import on the new one.

Is that the reccomended route?

I see this item on moving servers - but perhaps its not relevant to TC3...

To migrate to a new server you basicaly need to:
- install the same version of TeamCity on the new server
- copy .BuildServer from the old server to the new one
- search thrrough .BuildServer/config and change old absolute paths to new paths if necessary
- if you are using external database, but do not plan to move database, backup db data
- start new server

Hi Pavel,

Thanks for the quick answer, will try that out (after breakfast )

After installing the new v3.1.2 on new box, should I enter the licence info to make it enterprise before moving the BuildServer config, or is that covered in the config?

I think we have 4 or 5 build agents - just over the 3 free of the professional and definitely less than 20 build configs.

Thanks,
Chris

License key is stored in the .BuildServer/system/license.keys file. If you copy this file the new server will take it.

Thanks - running TC5 now, seems a little snappier

Although was hoping for some UI tweaks, perhaps small colour scheme change or something - can hardly tell its a different version

Thanks,

Chris
