Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Relocating your database to a new server is known as server migration.

 

To migrate your server follow these steps:

 

Backup your database from your current server

See Postgres Backup

Name your backup file "firepro.backup".

 

Download the server installation software onto the new server:

http://downloads.fp2.ca/database/9.6/FPPostGresSetup_x64_96.exe

 

If you're using an older machine with a 32-bit operating system use this instead:
https://downloads.fp2.ca/database/old/FPPostGresSetup_x32_91.exe

 

Copy the backup file "firepro.backup" onto the new server.

Log in to the new server as  a LOCAL Admin user.

 

Run the newly downloaded server installer.
Locate FPPostGresSetup_x64.exe and double-click to run.

When prompted, browse to the location of firepro.backup
