HOW TO: Simple guide to installing Hmailserver with MySQL plus Data Restore

Post by jimimaseye » 2016-04-30 12:31

The attached Word documents "HMS_Install_Recovery_Manual_.doc" (zipped for forum) is a simple guide from me to a basic install of Hmailserver with MySQL external database. It also covers the RESTORE of emails and settings from previous internal backup. Note that there are 2 versions of the document: one for v5.5 and one for more recent v5.7 of MySQL (due to the installation GUI of MySQL being fundamentally different).

This procedure is useful for migrating Hmailserver from server to server or changing the database type (recommended if initially using the default internal database.)

Note: In the event of a migration/Data Restore (following this manual), if the internal backup is not usable (due to size limits), then further help can be found: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=28017

Added version of manual for more recent MySQL version 5.7 (due to GUI installation process differences).
