I need to move my jForum from RHEL3 to an Ubuntu system can I just copy over the folder in my webapps directory and the database or is there more than that? Like reinstalling and moving jForum info, configs, etc over?

When I went from RHEL3 to RHEL5 at one of my customers all I had to do was copy. I just don't want to bring my company forum down longer than absolutely needed.

Your help is deeply appreciated.

That should be all you have to do.

Of course I'm assuming you will install the app server, permission the directories correctly, and migrate your database using the same username/password (not just copy the DB directory).

Thank you very much for the reply.

App server already installed. DB (postgres) already installed. Password different, as it should be, but I know how to change that in jForum. Permissions will match. So... I'll let you know how it went.

Thank you again.
