Migrating data from a development environment to a deployment environment
|Top Previous Next|
Development of EPiServer solutions often occur on a development machine and then need to be migrated across to a depoyment machine. This section describes how this process relates to the topic map information and the EPiServer Module related configuration.
We do not cover the entire EPiServer project migration process as this is something covered by EPiServer. What we describe is the steps that are needed to ensure that the topic map, once migrated, continues to work correctly.
As with any complex data operation it is suggested that all TMCore and EPiServer data is backed up before carrying out this operation.
An alternative to doing an EPiServer export and import, and a XTM import and export, is to move the entire database onto the deployment server. In this case the consistency checker does not need to be run as all of the EPiServer page ID's remain the same.
