This page describes what you would need to do to move your VIVO instance from one machine to another.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Make a backup of your current VIVO source directory
  2. Make a backup of your current VIVO relational database
  3. If different from your relational database, make a backup of your current VIVO triple store
  4. Copy these backup files to your new machine
  5. Create the vivo database, using the same username and password as the previous machine
  6. Load the relational database from the backup
  7. If you're installing everything into the same place that they were installed on the original machine, then there are no configuration changes to be made
  8. Otherwise, you'll need to modify your build.properties in the VIVO source directory, and runtime.properties in the VIVO home directory, changing any paths necessary
  9. If your relational database and triple store information are the same as before (same graphs, same usernames, same passwords), then there are no configuration changes to be made
  10. Otherwise, you'll need to modify your *.properties files (see above), changing any username and password information for relational and semantic stores
  11. Make sure tomcat is NOT running prior to building and installing VIVO
  12. Build and install VIVO
  13. Start tomcat

And that should be it.
