How to restore my back up in new device?


(Dr Torabi) #1

Hello.

I had a windows 10 device with XAMPP and Openemr 5.0.0… Unfortunately my HDD is corrupted. I have only my data back_up in emr_backup.tar file and openemr login usernames and passwords. But I don’t have XAMPP configurations such root password and mySQL password of previous device. Can I install a fresh copy of XAMPP and Openemr on new device and restore my data?

thanks.

Hi.

I have a tar archive that contains three folders:

openemr.sql.gz
openemr.tar.gz
phpgacl.tar.gz

You must install a new Xampp
Then unzip and place in “c:\xampp\htdocs” the file openemr.tar.gz.
Then with phpmyadmin you can restore the database (the file: openemr.sql.gz)
Also with phpmyadmin you must create a username and password and give all the permissions to the openemr database that you just restored.
The username and password must be the same as specified in “C:\xampp\htdocs\openemr\sites\default\sqlconf.php”
regards.
