How can I move Urchin and all of the report data to another server

Question: How can I move Urchin and all of the report data to another server?

Answer: Moving Urchin 5.x from one server to another requires the following basic steps:

  1. Upgrading to the latest version
  2. Moving the Urchin reporting databases for the profiles
  3. Moving the Urchin configuration data
  4. Moving any custom files and templates
  5. Checking new file permissions
  6. Re-activation of the Urchin license

NOTE The following detailed instructions can be applied to cross-platform moves as well. The Urchin reporting database files can be moved to any operating system supported by Urchin. Considerations when moving data and files from one platform type to another include command line syntax (such as adding ‘./’ or ‘sudo ./’ for Unix and Mac OSX systems respectively). Other considerations include directory syntax changes such as ‘Standard\Windows\folders\’ vs. ‘/standard/unix/directories/.’
