We have two Alfresco instances - one Prod and one Test running 5.2.0. I've been told that the Test Alfresco does not have the same stuff as the Prod Alfresco. I don't know anything about Alfresco but is there an easy procedure for synching them up - we need the latest data from Production Alfresco to the Test Alfresco?
I guess I will need to stop the alfresco service on both sides and dump out the database somehow and the content store from Prod to Test. And then restart the Prod and Test services? Is there any docs or how-twos on doing something like this?
This is what I've figured out about the Environment on Prod Alfresco so far:
Storage: /opt/alfresco/alf_data/contentstore + ../alf_data/contentstore.deleted /opt/alfresco/alf_data/solr6 postgressql - where is this???
Do check any additional files that you have modified/customized for solr for example any changes to "/solrhome/archive/conf/solrcore.properties" or "/solrhome/templates/rerank/conf/solrcore.properties" or "solr.in.sh"
Based on above details, connect the postgresql server and take a db dump that will be used for restoring into new environment. If you need help connecting to postgresql and how to take backups, checkout the documentation/tutorials
Step5: Finally, take backups for any configurations related to repo and share such as "alfresco-global.properties", "share-config-custom.xml" etc. after completing all the above steps. Make sure you take backup of all cutomizations done under "/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension" and /tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension" if you have any.
