    Dear All,

    I’m moving my PYDIO instance from one server to another.

    I already seen a few discussion on this forum about this topic and I have a pretty clear idea about how to move the installation:
    * backup/restore mysql DB
    * move /etc/pydio settings
    * clear cache


    However I’m currently using an old 7.0.1 installation and I think it’s better to have the same version on the newer server and then later upgrade it.
    Unfortunately I’ve seen that only the last package version (8.x) is available.

    My questions:
    * is there a way to find the 7.0.1 deb and install it?
    * is there a better way to proceed?

    Please note that I would like to avoid upgrading the current instance, if possible (I prefer to apply the upgrade to the new installation: if something goes wrong I still have the old server that is still working!)

    Thanks in advance and kind regards,

    Hi Andrea,
    Sorry for the late answer, we are always struggling a bit with deb packaging, and indeed we did not keep the 7 packages online.
    I think you should be able to actually install the v8 directly on the new server, on top of the old v7 DB: upgrade will be detected at startup and necessary changes will be applied to db.

    I have the same need than @andreascian
    But pydio V8 was push in stable channel a bit too early for the enterprise version

    Select multiple files using Ctrl + left click don’t works with pydio 8.0.x.
    this will be not accepted by our users like a progress.

    I have already point this without success.

    I do not want to offend someone. you’re the captain of the boat :)
    But wait 4 months or more the next major upgrade for perhaps fix this, is difficult to understand to my sence.

    Fortunately we have not migrated with closed eyes
    We are working with version 7.0.4 and wait quietly

    I hope patience will be rewarded with the next major update.

    Dear Charles,

    thanks for your reply and suggestion.
    I restore the DB into the new server and install the latest .deb (8.0.1) but it fails to complete the installation with the following popup error:

    unknown column ‘owner_user_id’ in ‘where clause’

    I did a rapid search into this forum and found this topic:


    So, as you suggested there, I apply the mysql migration script (7.0.2.mysql and 8.0.0.mysql) manually with mysql CLI client and after this the installation complete successfully.

    Now I’ll test the system and, in case of needs, I’ll write additional question in this topic.

    Kind Regards and thanks for your support

    Andrea Scian
