Importing an existing mySQL database into a new instance of Xibo 1.8

I wonder if you can help me.I have limited knowledge of systems and have been running a Live system on 1.7.6

I have set up a brand new instance of Xibo 1.8.1 on to another machine inside a Docker Container and I was wondering how to go about getting the existing database out of 1.7.6 into the new instance.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

You should be able to follow instructions under ‘Exporting your existing database’ here -

Then import it to your new CMS and that should be it, make sure that in settings.php in your new installation you have correct database name as well.

Of course backup / clone of the db would be, as always, recommended just in case.
