I want to transfer an Atlassian Confluence server installation to another server and another database, including all content and addons.
Basic procedure is:
=> Content is available, addons are not. With jira this procedure works great.
Is there another way to do this besides doing a database backup and restore?
You could go with the procedure you described or you could just move data, export and import database.
We have a copy of our production instances where users can try out add-ons and "mess around".
Let´s say we get a request to test out a new workflow. The script is invoked and all the data from the production servers are copied to the test server (rsync). The database is automatically dumped and imported again at the test server. Sql queries alters mail server settins, licenses and the base url. Finally the test instances are started. All this happens automatically.
The same procedure could be used when migrating servers.
If your are using linux and are interested i could send you a copy of our script.
Sorry for the late response.
Prerequisite: password-less ssh from prod to test
Change the ID of your user directory accordingly (mine was 10003 back in the days)
I have since using this started to use docker and docker-compose and do not use this approach anymore, but it used to work flawlessly (even without stopping the services on the production server)
