In our company we recently set up an Edx-Plattform with Bitnami. Sadly we had to notice, that various things (like setting up Microsoft Course Voucher validation) didn’t work with the Bitnami-Version.
Regrettably, this platform was already used commercially.
This means we now have some existing Course-Data, and instead of having everyone repeat their courses, we would like to simply migrate the Data.
The Bitnami-Version runs under the Hawthorn release.
We know that migrating from an earlier version of Edx to the current one should be possible, thanks to the following guide
The guide is for the Ginkgo to Hawthorne migration, but going from Hawthorn to Ironwood should be similar.
There is also a guide from Bitnami on how to dump the DB-Data.
Now, I created this thread to ask some question to spare my team some headache down the line.
- Do you think migrating from Bitnami away is even possible? Or would it be smarter to start from scratch?
- Do you think that applying the DB-Data from the Bitnami-Release is possible? If so, should the procedure outlined in the guides be sufficient or is there something we might have to watch out for?
I hope you can help me.
P.S.: I am thrilled to have found Tutor. Setting up Edx the regular way was quite the headache, and Tutor simplified this process greatly.
