What are the steps to migrate SM2 jobs to a new computer/server?

0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.

Can anyone explain in clear steps (1, 2, 3) how to migrate SM2 jobs to a new computer/webhost/server? I have two accounts in my SM2 installation.

What should I do? I am apprehensive, because I have read enough threads here to indicate that migrating will be problematic and may trigger unwanted results as a result of different webhost infrastructure/software/environment....

As a result of my VPS webhost being very incompetent, it seems I am now paying a price for it. It seems they can't renew their Windows license because they don't have enough money, I think. So they suggested that I change servers. Well, I am considering to move out from this joke of a VPS host because they have been giving problems right from the beginning.

Finding another reliable VPS host is tough enough though, there just are not any that can give the level of service equivalent to a proper webhosting service.  :( :( :(

In SM2:

1. Go to the Processes tab and click the Export Accounts button and save the file somewhere.
3. Install SM2 on the new VPS.
4. Transfer the saved accounts file to the VPS.
5. Make sure you've already whitelisted the proxy IPs for your new VPS (if needed).
6. Go to the Processes tab and click the Import Accounts button.
7. Go to each pin job and verify that the correct board is selected. To be sure select the board name again (even if it's already selected) and save the pin job.

That's all she wrote.

Hi

If you are looking for a VPS provider I can recommend https://www.vpsserver.com

I have 2 servers (Windows Server 2012 R2) with them (I took the $25/month server), they are both running 10+ accounts easily.  They have a 14-day trial (you need to enter credit card info) and the servers are ready to run in just a few minutes.

Good Luck
