Restore

Post by ronaldjerardmedina » 16 Oct 2017, 08:11

Hi,

I got an OTRS 5.0.11 i created a backup of it. Is it ok to restore it on a freshly installed otrs 5.0.23?
The reason why i dont just upgrade it is that im going to transfer it to a different server so i guess i can save time by doing so. Is this possible?
Thanks in Advance.

Hi jojo,

What do you mean by only restore database and config file?

BTW,

I currently restored my backup and some configs arent restored. where did i go wrong? my backup? or my restore?

backup script: ./opt/otrs/scripts/backup.pl -d /root/Desktop/Backups -t fullbackup

restore scrip: /opt/otrs/scripts/restore.pl -b <backup dir> -d /opt/otrs

restore.pl will restore also all files, so 5.0.23 will be 5.0.11 afterwards-

you should be able to just restore the cvonfig files (via tar) and the database only via mysql tools.
