Moving FogBUGZ to a new Server

Hi all,

We have just purchased a supplementary Intranet server, and I would like to move FogBUGZ from our primary server to this one.

Is there anything I should know before I start? Is it a simple case of installing FogBUGZ on the second server, then removing it from the main one? Or should I do it the other way around?

Cheers,
Matt

Install on the second server, get everything up and running and once thats working, move over the database.

Hmm. Well, everything's up and running, but when I edit the Site on the second server, and point it at our original 'fogbugz' database (rather than 'fogbugz1') it asks for a new license.

I tried pointing the original FogBUGZ installation at the new 'fogbugz1' database to get around it, but that causes the original installation to ask for a license too.

Am I going to have to manually copy the database entries from 'fogbugz' to 'fogbugz1' in SQL Server?

No, you shouldn't have to copy the records.  We just need to reset the license server for your order.  Send us email at the customer-service address.
