Migrating to another Splynx server


I am setting up another server as my current Amazon free tier has expired.

I am setting up another free tier and want to migrate to splynx in that server.

Kindly please let me know if there is a simple way to do it.

Thanks and regards,



on new server:
install clear splynx
make copy of /var/www/splynx to /var/www/splynx_new

on old server:
make backup (/var/www/splynx/system/backup/backup --full=true
copy all from old server /var/www/splynx to new server /var/www/splynx

on new server:
cd /var/www/splynx/system/backup/mysql
get last file with -full.sql.gz
unarchive it
mysql -u root -p splynx < last file -full.sql (unarchived)

enter mysql root password

and if all fine you receive restored database
than you need to copy new mysql config file
from /var/www/splynx_new/config/mysql.php to /var/www/splynx/config/mysql.php

run: dpkg-reconfigure splynx

Since Splynx version 2.0 /var/www/splynx/system/backup/backup --full=true makes 3 files in /var/www/splynx/system/backup/mysql/ folder instead of one.
For example:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root   root   18093 Mar 26 20:51 2018-03-26-20-backup-1-structure.sql.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root   root   32038 Mar 26 20:51 2018-03-26-20-backup-2-critical.sql.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root   root    3856 Mar 26 20:51 2018-03-26-20-backup-3-non-critical.sql.gz

So, you need to restore all of them (structure, critical, non-critical)

Please, don’t change sequence! Should be “structure” then “critical” and last “non-critical”!

Since Splynx has few versions you have to ensure that you have installed clear Splynx with the same version as your current Splynx.

If you have Splynx 2.2, you have to install clear Splynx 2.2 on a new server. The same with 2.3 and 3.0 versions.
