Is it possible to decommission a TESTINSTALL instance to re-test at a new URL?


Recommended Posts

We're going to decommission a -TESTINSTALL use of the license and move it to a different base URL. The site exists now after a lengthy upgade process. If we ask for the current TESTINSTALL license to be decommissioned, and then locate the document root into a new URL base, are the only changes we need to make in the conf_global.php? We don't need to re-upgrade (ie., "re-install") correct? That was a week-long slog through PHP and database processing we do not want to repeat. If all decommissioning means is:
 
a) We "turn off" the TESTINSTALL site by making it offline (moving it out of the document root)
b) Ask you release the license so we can re-commission it with a new base URL
c) We revise the conf_global.php for the new base URL
 
What exactly are the steps that allow us to avoid at all costs the "re-do" of the upgrade/install since it takes almost a week given the legacy data.
 
Desired outcome:
 
Current URL   http://example.com
License used FOO-TESTINSTALL
 
License used FOO-TESTINSTALL
 
Without having to re-run the upgrade. We have a perfect DB and document root. We can edit simple files and database records, but a wholesale repeated upgrade is not feasible.

Could you please clarify what you're attempting to do here? Is it one of the below:

  1. Are you wanting to make your Test URL your Live URL? If so, you would just need to move the software to where you need it to be then change your conf_global.php URL. Finally, you will want to put in your LIVE license key in ACP -> System -> License Keys.
     
  2. You are wanting to move your Test URL to a new location. If this is the case, we can do this but Test URLs typically are only reset when the domain on your Live URL changes. We can offer you a courtesy reset of the Test URL but we would recommend placing it on a sub-domain of your Live URL's domain so that you can move it around with DNS should you require.
