I saw the article on how to move Unimus from Windows to Linux, but how do you move it from one Windows server to another? Please advise. Thank you.

Hello,

Moving between two instances running the same type of OS (as in Windows-Windows, Linux-Linux) is the most straight forward.

In case of Windows and using our built-in HSQL database you want to:
- install Unimus on the new machine and stop Unimus service
- copy the whole folder C:\ProgramData\Unimus over to the new one and overwrite any of the conflicts
- start Unimus again.

In case you are using an external database, you will need to have the same type installed (that is both would need to be MySQL or PostgreSQL) and the process is the same, however you need to make sure the database is set up identically as on the original server. You can refer to C:\ProgramData\Unimus\unimus.properties for the information which was used on the original server for its external database.

Lastly, if you have done any tuning to timeouts or other parameters in C:\Program Files\Unimus\Unimus.l4j.ini, you will want to migrate them to the new server as well.
