Data Folder Migration

Following installation an EASA system resides in two folders:

  • <EASAROOT>→the installation folder holds EASA’s core system files
  • <SERVERDATA>→ the data folder holds user accounts, developed or published EASAP's and results data.

To change a prior installed name and location of the data folder without uninstalling/reinstalling the server follow the steps below,

  • Locate <SERVERDATA>
    • C:\Users\<USER>\EasaServerData (Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008)
    • C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\EasaServerData ( Windows XP or Windows Server 2003)
  • Move the folder to a new destination
  • Rename, if necessary.
  • Modify two files below using a text editor,
    • In <EASAROOT>/tomcat/conf/Catalina/Localhost/data.xml
      • Edit the following parameter in the <Context /> tag:
        • Update the value for docBase as appropriate:
          • docBase=''D:\EASA\MyNewEasaServerData'' path=''\data''
        • Save and close.
    • In <EASAROOT>\db\mysql-5.7.17-win32\my.ini
      • Update the following line with the new path
        • datadir = C:/Users/<USER>/EasaServerDataEval/easa/db/0/mydata/
          • Save and close.
  • Start the EASA Server.

After a successful configuration change the EASA Server should start, all user data including EASAPs and results will remain intact in the <SERVERDATA> folder.
