Topic: Upgrade to 2.4.9 from 2.4.8
Good evening everyone.
I am trying to upgrade to the newer version by creating a new installation on a new server then restoring from a backup of the company taken off of my old server. My newer install has a new database and a new initial company which I backed up as soon as the installation completed. On the setup screen I am trying to use the upload button to upload that backup file but it won't. Is there a way to make that backup uploadable? Maybe if I made a new company with the old name and linked it to a new database with the same name as the old database?
I am contemplating creating a database with the same name as the database on my old server from the mysql prompt, creating a company from my FA welcome page with the same name as my original company linked to that database and then using mysql at the command prompt to restore the backup file to this database on my new server. Is this something that would work?
Thanks for any advice.
