How to migrate system table data to external database?


#1

Hi,

I currently have setup DF in AWS EC2. This includes a default MySQL database to store system data.

I opted for an AWS RDS for my application data but now I want to store system data in this too. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Allen

instructions for switching your system database are here:

http://wiki.dreamfactory.com/DreamFactory/Installation#Switch_System_Database

This assumes you want to start over.

If you want to keep your existing system data, you’ll need to copy it from the current db to the new db first.
Then follow the above instructions, but skip the php artisan dreamfactory:setup step.
