Sorry I’m probably asking a dumb question…
I’ve never used Skeleton Export utility so I want to try it now. I see it provides 3 options: data only, data & code then data, code & media, which is great.
After the export, I got my
xxx-project-all.zip file. So what I do with it now? Just unzip it and copy it to my server’s webroot and use it to install FarCry by:
I suppose I still need to create an empty database also the datasource in CF by the same name before that?
If all these answers are yes, the deployment process is just awesome!
Yes, yes and yes
We use it for migrating from mySQL to MSSQL and back again. You can even drop the zip into the web root of a Railo Express installation and install it direct into the local H2 database
PS. I think there is a current bug where media (ie.
./files) are not included, but for now you can copy them into the new web root or set up a redirect to the live site
Thanks for the confirm…That’s fantastic! Database migration made super easy:)
I am pretty sure you dump it into /farcry/skeletons
so you will end up with /farcry/skeletons/my-exported-site/
You can edit the manifest that is used by the installer
Sorry confused now…
So I will still need to put the FarCry community release first then unzip and drop my skeleton export to ‘skeleton’ folder? Then from there I do install is that correct?
I thought I just need to create a new project folder and drop the ‘farcry’ folder from within my skeleton export and do install.
You don’t have to put it into /farcry/skeletons any more, you can do a DB install direct from the project folder (but only if you have a single project - multiple projects aren’t supported yet)
That’s right, you can just set up your web server as normal using the “full export” and run /farcry/core/webtop/install and it will do a DB install for the project.
Awesome…I’ll give it a go.
