Moving Logaholic To A New Server
If you need to transfer your Logaholic software and all the analytics data you’ve collected from one server to another, the following instructions will guide you step by step through the process.
The first step in transferring your data is to create a backup of your logaholic database using the mysqldump program.
If you have a Linux server, run the following command from the command prompt to backup your MySQL database:
Copy the entire logaholic folder from the old server to the new server.
To import the .sql backup file created earlier on the new server, run the following command from the command prompt:
Update the Global.php File
If the MySQL username, password, hostname or database name is different on the new server, you will need to update these settings in your “global.php” file. This file is located in the “files” subdirectory of your “logaholic” directory.
Make any necessary changes for the new server and save the file.
Update the Logfile and Database Location on the New Server
If the hostname you use to access Logaholic on the new server is different from the one you used when you initially installed Logaholic, you will need to generate a new license file. Please contact Logaholic Support to obtain a new license.
On a new server, system paths to your web tracking log files and the location of your database could be different. You can update the log file location settings in if necessary.
Logaholic should now be installed and functional on the new server.
