I know there are multiple threads on the subject of backups, but the searches I have done all find older (2008) versions of the issue and I thought work was beening done on this.
Problem: I have a server with the FreePBX 188.8.131.52 that is loosing a disk drive in the mirrored pair. The daily and weekly backups (CDR and VoiceMail verses a Full Backup) are fine on the NFS drives and go back a few months.
The new box I am building to temporarily replace the server while we rebuild the drive sets and in the process upgrade a number of things is pulling down the FreePBX 184.108.40.206 install.
Can I create a “NOW” backup, replace it with the current one off the older box and restore it with out damaging the SQL schema ? Or do I need to get a 220.127.116.11 version up and running , restore and then walk through the update tree ?
Old Box - Backup and Restore Module – 18.104.22.168
New Box - Backup and Restore Module – 22.214.171.124
