Moving SynaMan To A Different Machine
SynaMan is designed to store all of its configuration into plain text files. Therefore, moving it
from one machine to another is just a matter of copying folders between machines.
Moving Between Similar OS Eg. Windows to Windows
The following steps demonstrate how to move SynaMan from, let's say, a Windows 2008 machine to a Windows 2016 machine.
- Install SynaMan on the new machine
- Stop SynaMan's service
- Move data files from older machine to the new machine. For example, if you have a Virtual Folder
called ImportantDocs referring to
C:\ProjectDocs\ImportantDocs on the old machine,
copy the contents of that folder to the new machine.
It is highly recommended to retain the folder structure to avoid getting invalid path errors.
- Move the contents of the following from from $INSTALL_DIR, which refers to the
installation path of SynaMan. Note that every folder is optional besides the
$INSTALL_DIR\config - Contains configuration for SynaMan. This also contains licensing information.
$INSTALL_DIR\AttRepForSmtp - Contains attached files. This only exists if you're using the Embedded Smtp Server
$INSTALL_DIR\branding - Applicable if you have branded SynaMan
$INSTALL_DIR\FileComments - Contains comments associated with files
$INSTALL_DIR\htdocs\sslCert - Contains SSL certificate
- Search for the older machines IP address and host name with files located in the
$INSTALL_DIR\config folder. Replace every occurrence with the new value.
- Restart SynaMan
Moving Between Different OS Eg. Windows to Linux
Since the file naming conventions a different between Windows and Linux, following steps are required.
$INSTALL_DIR\config\UserMappings.xml in any editor and modify the file paths. For
example, if you had a virtual folder referring to
C:\ProjectDocs\ImportantDocs on Windows, you
may have to change this path to
$INSTALL_DIR\config\AppConfig.xml file contains the command to restart SynaMan. Therefore,
before make a backup copy of this file before replacing the
config folder. Once done, restore the
contents containing following parameters
