Post by kxhuang080 »


I want to change server (Maybe replace the OS and hard disk)and will reinstall OpenKM,but how to keep the uuid unchange ?
Of course, I had do a test. as below:
At first I use OpenKM Admin panel export database .Then import database ( select Restore UUIDs ) to other testing server . At last I failed, the uuid was changed.

Did you exported with metadata and history checked ? You should do it.
Why you are not doing a full backup and then restore database and files into the new server ? if you are not doing database change between server should be the best option.

Some information about backup and restore process ... rsync.html
Some information about replication ... ation.html ( might have some interest for you )

If you are in windows, then must do something similar but with windows tools ( copy folders between servers, dump database and restore in the new server ).
