How to move/migrate the SolusVM Master to the new server?
Deploy the new dedicated server and install Master SolusVM on it
Backup the database of the source Master SolusVM, browse to Dashboard > Tools > Database and click on Download
Parts of SolusVM Master database are encoded using a unique encryption key stored in /usr/local/solusvm/includes/solusvm.conf. The format of the solusvm.conf is as follows:
CONFIG_TEXT: <DATABASENAME>:<USER>:<PASSWORD>:<HOST>:<the key is the last entry>
Replace the <the key is the last entry> part in the solusvm.conf on the new server with <the key is the last entry> part from the solusvm.conf from the old server
WARNING: If this step is missing, non of your passwords or slave connections will work.
After that upload the mysql dump of the SolusVM database to the new server and restore it on the new server:
# /usr/bin/mysql --user=USER --password=PASSWORD DATABASENAME < database.sql
USER, PASSWORD, DATABASE should be taken from the new solusvm.conf file
If the IP address of the SolusVM Master server has been changed after the transfer - change IP address of localhost node in SolusVM > Nodes > Edit Node next to localhost and remove the following files on the every slave server -
Move templates from the old server to the new one. The location of templates is below:
/home/solusvm/kvm/templates - for KVM templates
/home/solusvm/xen/templates - for Xen templates
/vz/templates/cache - for OpenVZ templates
