How to move Buddy Enterprise to another server

To relocate your Enterprise installation and data, follow these steps:

  1. Login to the server where Buddy Enterprise is installed and turn it off:

     sudo buddy stop
  2. Perform a backup:

     sudo buddy backup

    If you want to backup the cache files, too, use: sudo buddy --full backup

  3. Buddy will inform you where the backup was saved. If you haven’t changed the Application data setting, the file will be saved in ~/.buddy/app/backups/ and named something like 1519120760.tar.gz.
  4. Move the file to the new server.
  5. Download the CLI and install Buddy from backup on the new server:

     curl -sSL | sh && sudo buddy --backup=path/to/backup install
