Move POS to a new system

If I want to move the POS to a new system and keep ALL of the settings, and most importantly, keep all of the report data. How do I go about this?

I tried a database backup, then restore and I tried just copying the SambaPOS folder in my documents, but neither gave the desired results. Thanks.

Backup should do it. You using the backup module?

Maybe I am not sure how to backup? I used the “backup to file” option? It made a text document? Then I just imported it to the new system.

I did “Database Tools” and then “Backup to file”, The reversed the order to import it. But it did not work. All the reports are blank.

The logical name “Sambapos5” is already in use? Never mind… Worked anyway. :slight_smile:

I get this message @emre every time I move my DEV backup database to LIVE site? It works anyway, does not LOG you out…

What is the actual database name? It looks like a casing issue.

I think in my case SAMBAPOS - yes confirmed…

Sorry for the delay currently on holiday in Singapore - Sentosa Island.
