Restore the backup into the new repository.
If Solr is being used, put the following directories from your backup to the dir.root directory on a new instance.
- contentstore directory
- solr/workspace directory (optional)
- solr/archive directory (optional)
- contentstore.deleted directory
Some of the above mentioned directories are optional. This is because if the indexes are not copied over from the previous installation, Solr will query Alfresco Content Services and rebuild its index in background after the startup. It may take more time to rebuild indexes on large repositories. Applications will be accessible during reindex process.
- Point the new deployment to the old database via the db.* properties in alfresco-global.properties by providing the JDBC URL, database name, login credentials, and any other relevant configuration options. Remember to specify the relevant JDBC driver into your application server's classpath.
