How to move an October cms installation? I only found the description of leaderinternet, but find it much too complicated. Can't I copy the backup files into another web directory and open the page with a tool? There are several plugins for WordPress that make a move quick and easy (e.g. Duplicator). There is no plugin for October? How else can you make a move? Perhaps is a video tutorial in planning?
How manage the move other designers?
Hi, you can use github to manage this. Otherwise normal FTP would also work.
Hi, I tried this: copy all files from old folder to new folder, change file config/app.php - line 'url' => 'http://...../', to new domain. But this is not working - open page in browser with new domain - error message wrong installer...
If I am installing OC on Shared hosting I go with
For small projects I just .sqlite database
After finishing I attach website in backend to OC project to insall all project plugins, I just love this option one click, and all plugins are installed! Attach website to Project here https://myweb.oo/backend/system/updates
After this just copy your /theme and your plugin files to /plugin foledrs. And login in your https://myweb.oo/backend And all should work!
Also suggest to use SFTP for SublimeText
If you work with .sqlite database, then you also can copy database to storage/database.sqlite if all is default!
The only folders what you can move around is /themes folder and /plugins and /storage/database.sqlite
If I am installing OC on VPS or with posibility to install trought
Console installation I always use Laravel Forge with auto deploy! And store my themes and plugins in git repo!
Here is my forge deploy script
cd /home/forge/mywebsite.lv cp public/storage/database.sqlite "/home/forge/mywebsite.lv/private/backup/$(date '+%Y-%m-%d-%H%M').sqlite" cd /home/forge/mywebsite.lv git pull origin master cd /home/forge/mywebsite.lv/themes/oct-theme-mywebsite git pull origin master cd /home/forge/mywebsite.lv/private/oct-plugin-login-work git pull origin master cd /home/forge/mywebsite.lv rm -r plugins/mywebsite/* cp -r private/oct-plugin-login-work/work plugins/mywebsite/ php artisan october:up php artisan october:mirror public/ echo "" | sudo -S service php7.1-fpm reload
If any help needed I can make video turorial if someone needs it, how do I do it.
It shouldn't be that difficult. If you are deploy OctoberCMS on a cloud server, like Cloudways PHP MySQL Hosting, you can deploy using git. Your website should have a repo on github. Once your server is launched with PHP stack, you have to install OctoberCMS and then deploy your website to public_html folder.
