Moving to new svn repository

January 4, 2008

New svn repository is at http://svn.habariproject.org/habari/trunk/htdocs/ so I use a dumb way. I have an very old database schema so this is the right time to flush outdated things out. Here are what I have done.

  1. create new installation folder say new_folder
  2. check out latest svn copy at that new folder svn co http://svn.habariproject.org/habari/trunk/htdocs/ .
  3. create new database say new_db
  4. do a fresh new installation by pointing one of my spare subdomain to that new_folder
  5. deactivate all plugins at the existing installation, this is very important
  6. export existing database from the working installation excluding the 3 outdated tables which aren’t used in the new schema
  7. import database into the new_db
  8. download this custom theme and upload it to the new_folder
  9. point this domain to the new_folder
  10. do a /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

That was it.
