I would like to find out if it is possible to batch export courses from one Forma (1.4.2) server and import them on an alternative Forma (1.4.2) server?
I have a client who's courses are currently on my Forma server (white labeled various clients - so sharing one server). I would like to move the specific client to a dedicated instance only for their courses and would appreciate an easier and quicker way to transfer over 500 course programmes....
However a lot of usless informations will be left into the database that you should consider to remove: old users tracking data, certificate references, old forum posts, and so on. Also, certificate files for old users, their personal uploaded files (images, pdf, etc), and the materials of courses you removed.
Your client won't be able to do much with this stuff, but for privacy and to provide a clean install you should consider to remove it.
Do I need to do a new install first on the new server or would a normal restore of the relevant site files and database (with of cause some connection string changes) work?
I'm excluding the installation of FTP and mail functionality on the new server as that would have to be done in any case...
