I’ve managed to migrate my users/forums from our Drupal-based site into a Development environment on OSX. I now want to either:
- Upload the Backup into my Production instance on Digital Ocean and restore from the UI or,
- Perform the same migration on the Production box, bearing in mind the site hasn’t gone live yet and I have backups.
My issue with No 1 is that although the backup file has uploaded, it’s been split into about 20 files within a tmp directory due to the size of it, and isn’t showing up in the UI. Is there a special way of restoring from a set of files, or should I just FTP the full file into the Backups folder?
With No 2, I know that’s not the ideal method, but I’ve run the migration fine on several occasions in Dev mode, but cannot work out how to do this in a production environment anyway; how is this done? I’m a Ruby Newbie, so this business of switching modes might be a simple matter I’m just not aware of.
Many thanks in advance,
