I have been using seafile version 6.1.2 on Centos 7 but unfortunately server host crashed I have available my seafile-data and databases ccnet-db.sql , seafile-db.sql and seahub-db.sql in my Backup . How I can recover , Should I need to install fresh seafile server and copy seafile-data to new seafile data directory and restore databases to new databases; ?? is it a proper way to recover the crashed server. can someone please guide me how I can recover and restore seafile sever with backup??
Please help me , Thanks in advance.
is there any documentation available for Moving/migrating Seafile to a new server ?? Please share
Please help me, should I need to install fresh same version 6.1.2 or any version on new centos host and start recovering in manual guide https://manual.seafile.com/maintain/backup_recovery.html.
Any other task need to be done ?? major version should be ok ? And even I don’t have old seafile databases password available is it require?
Someone Please help me . I’m a Linux beginner.
Even though I’m sure you figured it out in the meantime: on the new server
- Mount the folder
- Import databases
- Install seafile
- Install seafile
- Import e.g overwrite databases
- Import e.g. overwrite folder
I prefer the first way but not sure what works better
Thanks a lot @mulmer, I have preferred second option and all went well. Now everything up and running
glad to hear that it all worked out for you ! and that I now can be sure that overwriting the DB and seafile Folder ist enough to get the server running again.
I didn’t have this case yet but I’m sure I will need to do it some day…
Yes,Overwriting the DB and seafile Folder and executed minor-upgrade.sh done everything worked.
I was using seafile 6.1.2 and installed same version on new machine. @mulmer
Could you please provide some more details about how to “import the databases”?
Edit: Ok, found something here: Seafile documentation
Will try. Keep your fingers crossed!
