I’m currently evaluating the upgrade path to Ghost 3.0, and have tried the following
- Doing the import/export from the labs section
- zipping/unzipping the/var/www/ghost/contents directories as needed and doing a mysql dump/restore
The import/export option works fine, but it doesn’t have the associated images.
The custom backup route, gives me a load of errors that I didn’t bother to try and delve into. Then I tried zipping/unzipping just the images folder, with the import/export, but it’s not looking for the images in the right subdirectories.
Is there a “standard” way of backing up everything?
Edit: Because there are a lot of compatibility issues, with my current theme, I am installing V3 on a brand new server, under a different hostname (https://new.codetips.co.uk/) so I can work out all the kinks and then switch over. I’ve also noticed my Subscribers haven’t moved over.
If there isn’t a way of moving everything over, I’m probably going to have to re-upload all the images and trawl the mysql database and export the subscribers.
