Instructions for migrating the Crowd internal HSQDLB database to SQL Server

Thomas Douglas July 2, 2018

Does anyone have any experience with migrating Crowd from it's internal database (HSQDLB) to a SQL Server instance? I would imagine there is an Atlassian document on it but I have not had any luck finding one.

Thanks, 

Byron Douglas

Hi @Thomas Douglas

Please follow these instructions: https://confluence.atlassian.com/crowd/migrate-to-another-database-180290495.html

(The procedure is the same for all databases, including HSQLDB)

Migrate to Another Database has the instructions to migrate the database.

Thanks for this information! The document seems to outline migrating to a new server and migrating in the process. In my case, I'd like to upgrade my existing server, without changing anything other than the data store. Is there a way to change it without uninstalling and reinstalling my Crowd instance? It would be preferable if so

Thanks

It's been a while since I played around with Crowd, but I don't think you can do the migration from within the tool, so after you done the XML backup you can follow these instructions to Restart the setup wizard from scratch.

@Mikael Sandberg is right, restarting from a fresh crowd.cfg.xml is the way to go.
