from 1.1.8 to 2.4.0. safe data loss less update

Post by daniele.verrocchio » May 02, 2017 4:25 am

Hi All,
we are looking for a safe and fast way to update our current version 1.1.8 to the latest mantis version without data loss or service discontinuity. we are thinking to install a new environment in parallel, configure all service, install the latest mantis stable version and than transfer all data and configuration, is there a guide or procedure that describe hot to do something like that?


thank you.
Daniele

- Export database on old server
- Import database on new server
- Download latest MantisBT and unpack it in the web root of the new server
- After that it's similar to upgrade an existing instance on a single server https://www.mantisbt.org/docs/master/en ... ml-desktop

If your attachments are stored in filesystem (not database): Copy your directories with attachments from your old web server to the new one.
The easiest way for it would be to use exactly the same directory structure.
Please use Search before posting and read the Manual
