Moving an AdMan Installation

(1788 views. Last Updated: 2009-02-02 2:11 PM)

Please Note: Your license can be transferred to another server, but after you have finished transferring the AdMan software, you MUST own a license for every server that is running AdMan.

This posting will demonstrate how to move an AdMan installation from oldsite.com to newsite.com:

1. Ensure that you have PHPMyAdmin installed on both your web servers. If you do not, you can download it for free at http://www.phpmyadmin.net.

2. Ensure that you have a suitable text editor installed on your computer. If you do not, we recommend jEdit, which can be downloaded at http://www.jedit.org/

3. Use a web browser to access PHPMyAdmin on oldsite.com (usually accessible at http://www.oldsite.com/phpMyAdmin). Click on Databases in the main window. Then click Export and check "Add DROP DATABASE" and "Save as file" and click "Go". Save the .sql file to your local computer.

4. Open the .sql file in a text editor and replace all occurrences of "http://www.oldsite.com/" with "http://www.newsite.com/". This can be done in jEdit by selecting Search->Find from the menu and using the replace window that opens.

5. Follow the directions at http://www.formfields.com/adManArea/adMan1/adManSetup.php to do a fresh AdMan installation on the newsite.com server.

6. Use a web browser to access PHPMyAdmin on newsite.com. Then click the Import tab and run the .sql file mentioned above. Note: If your existing installation contains a lot of data, you may need to perform this step using the command line.

7. Use an FTP client to transfer all the files in http://www.oldsite.com/FORMfields/upload and http://www.oldsite.com/adMan/uploads to http://www.newsite.com/FORMfields/upload and http://www.newsite.com/adMan/uploads respectively. You may want to first download the files from oldsite.com to your computer and then upload these files to newsite.com

8. Remove the AdMan installation on oldsite.com by deleting the old database tables using PHPMyAdmin and software in http://www.oldsite.com/FORMfields and http://www.oldsite.com/adMan using an FTP client or command line.
