You may want to move your CommuniGate Pro server to a different computer - running the same or a different OS. All your module settings, Account and Domain settings, Mailboxes, licenses, and other data can be preserved.
CommuniGate Pro keeps all its data in the base directory. This is the only directory you need to copy to your new server computer.
CommuniGate Pro uses the same file formats on all hardware and software (OS) platforms, so usually you can just pack the entire CommuniGate Pro base directory into an archive file (using tar and gzip on Unix systems, zip on MS Windows systems), and unpack the archive on the new server computer.
Additional processing is needed when you move the CommuniGate Pro Server from a computer running any MS Windows operating system to a computer running any flavor of Unix, or vice versa. CommuniGate Pro files are text files, and text files on MS Windows and Unix have different EOL (end of line) symbols: CR-LF (return - linefeed) on MS Windows and bare LF (linefeed) symbol on Unix systems. To copy files properly, you may want to use any FTP software to copy files between those systems: when an FTP client is instructed to transfer files in the ASCII mode, it properly converts EOL symbols.
Note: CommuniGate Pro base directory can contain non-text (binary) files in the WebSkins and PBXApps directories inside the Account and Domains subdirectories - graphic, audio, and video files used in the custom Skin Interfaces and Real-Time Applications. Account File Storage can also contain binary files. These files are stored in the account.web directories inside the Account directories. When you move a CommuniGate Pro base directory between systems using different EOL conventions, check that those binary files are copied in the BINARY mode (i.e. without EOL re-coding).
If the new server computer is running a Unix system, check that the copied directory and all its files and subdirectories have the same access rights as they had on the old system.
After the CommuniGate Pro base directory is copied, download and install the proper version of the CommuniGate Pro Server on the new server computer. There is no need to copy the content of application directory from the old server computer, even if both new and old computers are running the same operating system.
Check that the newly installed copy of the CommuniGate Pro Server (its startup script, if any) is configured to use the copied base directory, and then start the CommuniGate Pro Server on the new computer. Use the WebAdmin Interface to modify the computer-related settings on the new server. For example, you may need to update the Client IP Addresses table or re-assign IP addresses to CommuniGate Pro Domains.
