Migrating to a New MySQL Server


#1

We are in the process of migrating to a new database server and have run into an issue. We have exported the entire database and imported it to the new server. Other than modifying the config.ini, is there something else that needs to be updated? Pointing to the new database doesn’t throw an error, but the screen is blank save the piwik logo. The easy work around is to follow the instruction in the FAQ, but I do not want to install a new website and have to go through the girations of custimizing and adding and configuring plugins.

It should work fine, do you see some error in your web server error log?

Turns out if you delete the config file (backup a copy) and go through the initial install process it works fine. Simply changing the connection information did not work.
