[SOLVED] Migrate user and cam config, but no data

Post by sherminator » Tue Oct 17, 2017 9:43 am

Hi everybody,

after succesfully testing Zoneminder we like to migrate our virtual test installation to real hardware. :D
Both (source and destination) is a 1.30.4 from iconner's Ubuntu repos.
What we would like best is migrating the user configs (including passwords) and the camera configs, but no data. There we would like to start from zero.
Could you give me a hint how to handle this?

Thanks a lot and many greets
Stephan

Take a dump (backup) of the zm database on the test machine and import it into a blank zm database on the new machine. Yes, the record of events will come over but zmaudit will clean them out. I've done this several times using the MySQL utility in Webmin.

Hi,

sorry for my late reply - and thanks for your support!
Migration worked like a charm, everything runs fine.
