Migrate 1.2.0 to the latest release onto a new box



  • Hi everyone,

    I’ve been running 1.2.0 for years. Solid and happy. However I would like to upgrade it to the latest 2017 release but I don’t want to do an in-place upgrade. Back in the day I’ve moved many FOG servers from one box to another following a very simple process:

    a) mysql dump the database from one server and import it onto another “blank freshly installed FOG” server.
    b) copy the image files using simple rsync

    This time however I want the new “recipient” server to be the latest version of FOG.

    What anyone tell me whether this would work? If not what would you suggest as a good way to move my existing FOG onto another box and run the latest version?

    Thanks
    ~B
