Move xibo 1.7.4 to new server

Hi, I am running Xibo 1.7.4 on Centos 5.8 server, I would like to move it to the new server which has Ubuntu 14.04 server.

Is this the correct way of doing it ? Is there anything else I am missing ?

Install Xibo 1.7.4 on Ubuntu.
Move all the contents of xibo folder to Ubuntu (replace all contents)
Move xibo mysql database to Ubuntu
Change mysql database credentials on settings.php to reflect new server
On all xibo client change the Server Address to Ubuntu server

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

I think that sounds reasonable.

You only need to copy over the server library and the database if you’re already installing a fresh 1.7.4 on the new server.

So install 1.7.4 on new server
Copy server library over
Drop the Xibo database on the new server
Create a new database on the new server with the same name as the one you just dropped
Restore a backup of your Centos Xibo database in to that blank database

Log in to Xibo on the Ubuntu server. Check that the SERVER_LIBRARY setting is pointing to the correct location.

Reconfigure your Players to use the new server.

thank you Alex, I will update how it goes.
