Topic: Upgrade with remote MySQL?
==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====
- iRedMail version: 0.9.9
- Deployed with downloadable installer
- MySQL backend
- iRedAdmin-Pro? No
Hi. I have a working 0.9.9 server. All is well. I am going to move it to a new server. I use a separate MySQL server. I don't run MySQL server on the mail server. So when the new mail server is running, it will use the same database server.
I want to run the iRedMail.sh script on my new mail server, because it installs, compiles, and configures all the daemons. If I run the iRedMail.sh script, it will connect to the database server. Will it update/rewrite/change the MySQL tables there? I have a lot of users, domains, aliases, etc. I want to keep the MySQL tables the way they are.
I read the migration instructions and I don't see how to migrate to a new server without building the MySQL server from scratch. The instructions talk about how to export and reload the SQL tables, but I don't need to do that. I don't really want to do that unless I must.
What's the right way to do it?
