Transfer / Copy / Migrate / Deploy Silverstripe Websites
I have moved a ton of Silverstripe Websites over the years, but I still have to think about the steps every time.
So here is a script generator of sorts that helps you transfer a Silverstripe website from one server to another server.
By completing the details in the form below you build a command line (SSH) list of steps you can copy and then paste into a bash file (after careful inspection!) to migrate your website.
The wizard assumes the following about your project:
SSH access to both servers
site uses SVN and/or GIT and/or Composer
parent folder of web-root folder is writable and can be used to store files
site uses _ss_environment.php file
Mysql Database has already been created on new server
Please complete your details in the form on the left.
Doing so will create a script on the right that you can copy line-by-line or as a whole, into a bash-esque script.
This script will move a website from an old server to a new server in its entirety.
