Migrate existing data

Previous pageNext page Print this topic! Mail us feedback on this topic!

When you are migrating an existing Jama installation (predating this new deployment model), you have an existing data folder that is commonly referred to as "Contour Home," e.g. /home/contour_home or c:/contour_home. Some of the files in the existing data folder need to be migrated to the (new) application server of the new deployment model. The following table shows how to migrate these files.

On the (new) application server, all files and folders need to be given the appropriate ownership and permissions for Jama to run properly. Execute the following commands to set these permissions.

chown -R 91:91 /data/contour

chmod -R u+rwX /data/contour
