How to restore a production environment to an existing pre-production one?

Answer

However and as the pre-production environment already exists, some precautions have to be followed:

  1. The digital-factory-config folder has not to be copied as the pre-production contains a file jahia.node.properties and possibly other personalized properties files.
  2. If binaries are stored in the file system in the production environment, the following chapter must be checked:
    Restore the binaries stored on the filesystem
  3. If you got this warning when starting nodes:

    The table JGROUPSPING must be deleted: DELETE FROM JGROUPSPING
  4. The tomcat/temp and the tomcat/work folders must be flushed in the pre-production environment.
