Migrate your server


You may find you need to move your Totara site from one server to another, for a variety of reasons, such as changes to infrastructure and hosting. Before migrating your Totara site, please ensure that the new server meets the minimum system requirements. We also recommend you read our consideration for migrating your server.

If you wish to migrate your site from one server to another, then we recommend you follow these steps:

  1. Go to Quick-access menu > Server > Maintenance mode and enable maintenance mode.
  2. Back up the Totara database on the old server.
  3. Restore the database backup to the new server.
  4. Copy dataroot from the old server to the new server.
  5. Copy the Totara code from the old server to the new server.
  6. Take the site out of maintenance mode.
This method should be used if you are migrating your site without changing the site's URL.
