Server migration
« on: May 25, 2019, 05:44:36 AM »

I need to move my fengoffice installation from one server to another.
The FQDN of the new server will be the same just a different IP.

Name of the database will be different but everything else is the same
Folder location and fengoffice version is not changing.

Here is the process I'm following.
1. Export MySQL database to fengoffice.sql on old server
2. Import fengoffice.sql to new MySQL database on new server
3. tar fengoffice folder to fengoffice.tar on old server
4. untar fengoffice.tar on new server inside new fengoffice folder
5. edit config.php with the new mysql login info and database name
6. Done!

Am I missing anything here, cause I'm getting a 500 error when I try to access fengoffice after I do this and I can't figure out why.

I already verified rights and ownership of the files on the new server.
And if I do a brand new install of fengoffice on the new server it works.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this issue.
