Move entire wiki onto a new server

Does anybody have an idea how I can (hopefully easily) transfer my entire WackoWiki from one machine/server onto another?

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!


  1. Using Backup and Restore module

    You can transfer the tables and the user related files with the Backup and Restore module in the Admin panel.
    The source and the target version of WackoWiki should be the same.

    Steps in Admin panel
    1. Backup module: Run an backup of the entire wiki including the files.
      1. ensure that the folder file/backup/ exists and is writable
      2. The backup is stored under file/backup/[date_time].
    2. Move the folder to your new installed wiki and put it at the same location, e.g. file/backup/
      1. transfer backup folder via SFTP
    3. Restore module: Run restore.
      1. restore backup

    A more detailed Backup and Restore guide will follow with the next release. Please read the section about the Admin panel in the release notes.
