I have an invoice ninja installation on a server through softaculous. I now have another server and I want to transfer all my data to the new installation again through softaculous but I haven’t managed to find an easy way.
I tried to copy and paste the db from phpmyadmin without success.
In regards to migrating to another server … is there a step by step guide written for dummies somewhere?
Things like we recommend using mysqldump to migrate the data, while helpful to someone who knows the ins and outs of mysql, is going to land a lot of people in trouble … hmmm … let me rephrase that have landed keen people in big trouble …
I have managed to complete successfully the migration; below are the steps i followed.
I exported the DB form the original destination through phpmyadmin.
I went to the new server and created a new empty database and gave it the name of the exported one.
I then created a new user, same credentials as the exported one.
I imported the db with no errors.
I then installed invoice ninja on the preferred domain name through softaculous.
Finally, I edited the env file to match the migrated DB and the app key.
