Configuration export

Post by sage12 » Sep 12, 2018 10:11 pm


For some specific reason, I can't create a new projet on Mantis (used by 2 differents customers). I would like to install another mantis on my machine (which has already one). But I want to keep the current configuration, workflow...but on a new databse

I was thinking:
- Backup existing DB
- Restore DB has a new DB
- Copy / Paste current configuration with new folder name
- Change DB information connection on the new installation
- Set up the webserver

Do you see a problem with this ?

Thanks a lot.

After that, you have an exact copy including users, projects, configuration and issues.
Is this what you want?
If so, your steps should work.

You might have to consider file attachments if you have attachments stored on filesystems but not in database.
