Move from one server to another

Hello,

I have moved my Web Site(mojoPortal) and MSSQL database from one server to another, but now I get installation screen when I try to open my web site. Why MojoPortal ask for installation? I have moved the whole database all all files intact. 

Regards,
Tomas

Re: Move from one server to another

I get message below

 

Probing system...

File system permissions ok.

MSSQL database connection ok.

mojoSetup has detected that the database user does not have permission to alter the database schema. You need to correct this or provide a connection string with sufficient permission.

 

database initial schema already exists.

database core schema needs upgrade.

Re: Move from one server to another

I have adjusted User permissions in MSSQL but now MojoPortal tries to run queries, why MojoPortal tries to update database? I use the same database which is used on another server and MojoPortal all files also copied from that server.

 

Probing system...

File system permissions ok.

MSSQL database connection ok.

database permissions are sufficient to alter schema.

Re: Move from one server to another

How did you move the database? What steps did you take to move it?

Re: Move from one server to another

I have selected "export" option in MSSQL server, entered new MSSQL server address and login information, clicked finish and MSSQL server moved database to new location.

Re: Move from one server to another

That will not work. All of your tables lost their primary keys and indexes and it lost all the stored procedures.

There are only 2 ways it can work.

1. Create a database backup on the original server and restore it on the new server.

2. You "may" also be able to use this tool to script off all the objects and data into a script that can be run on the new machine.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Move from one server to another

Hi, Could you please bring me a light: is there a way to move the sites in a same way for MySQL DB servers? I have the similar situation with MySQL 4.1.22. Is that means what my DB Backup/Restore have lost some data/indexes? Thanks a lot in advance, Igor

Re: Move from one server to another

Follow the instructions here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/copying-databases.html.

All you need to do is create backup using mysqldump.

HTH,

Re: Move from one server to another

Thanks a lot! I am not sure what I will be able to implement the import at the remote commerce hosting, but, anyway, you've point me the way. BTW: Is phpMyAdmin used the mysqlimport functionality for the Import option? I will try anyway.. Thanx a lot, again. Igor.

Re: Move from one server to another

Hi,

Tools like phpMyAdmin can export and import mysql dumps.

I use SqlYog myself, if your connection string works over the internet you should be able to install it locally and connect to your remote db to create a dump on your local machine then connect to the new one and restore it. Typically in shared hosting that is how it would work whereas on a dedicated server if the db is on the same machine as the web site then the db may not be exposed over the internet.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Move from one server to another

Make that two votes for SQLYog. I prefer it over PHPMyAdmin.
