Rebuilding My Machine

Sun Jan 14, 2018 12:46 pm

Thanks to Dave and Dave I am now to the point where MyServer is installed, running and properly licensed. I'm hoping these is some way to transfer the old files with all my work to this new build. The entire original install resides on another hard disc that I was having trouble with. But the files are all accessible. Is there any hope for this? In particular I'm hoping to recover all the rules I built.

Thanks, Chris

Is there a backup of the database on the old server? If yes, just restore that database file.

No there is not. But I was thinking about that. There were a lot of problems with that hard drive but I think I can get it booted up, start MyServer and make a backup. I'll try that first.

Thanks, Chris

See if you can grab the actual database files located in the

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.MYSERVERSQL\MSSQL\DATA
folder. myDatabase_data.mdf and myDatabase_log.ldf. You can use those files directly.

I installed the old hard drive and booted 'er up and she was pretty stable. Backed up the settings and plugged my new hard drive in and resytored everything. So the server side seems OK.

Now I'm on a "client" machine trying to test connectivity to the server. I can't get MyDesigner to start even after a re-install. Just have the little spinning progress indicator and the app says "not responding." I tried to run it as an admin and it comes up. Bust as soon as I click on anything I get the spinner and the "not responding" message.

Help!

Thanks, Chris

I just noticed there's nothing in the .HTML directory. The first time it seemed to log a good restore so I don't know why there's nothing in the .HTML directory. So I tried the database restore function again. This time it says something about an error at line 1864. And the problem referenced in my previous post still exists - Designer won't start on a my client machine.

I don't know what to do and need some help.

Thanks, Chris

Maybe I should be your Beta tester for any new software you come up with. I seem to be pretty good at breaking stuff. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Sounds like you forgot to install .NET on the new machine.

Follow the step by step on the documentation for myServer installation.

a database backup just backs up the database...not the html files. just copy the html directory over.
You could really copy the entire myServer folder over - after doing reinstallations.
It's a little difficult to follow your posts.
