Hello,

I need to migrate my system to another pc, but the link in this topic is not valid anymore.

The instructions here
https://help.timetrex.com/v10.0/communi ... lation.htm
don't seem to be correct anymore.

Does anyone have advice?

Best regards,
Rob.

Hi, thanks for quick response.
When I try to edit the database-backup it looks like this: (see attached screendump)
I am running the latest version of Timetrex. Did not have this problem earlier.

As per the FAQ, only if you are migrating from TimeTrex v9.0 or older do you need to edit the .SQL file. That step is not required when migrating newer versions.

Thanks, my mistake, I missed that.

This line in the FAQ states:
6. Edit c:\temp\timetrex.ini.php, and copy the line that starts with salt= to the new c:\timetrex\timetrex.ini.php

My timetrex.ini.php is in c:\timetrex\timetrex folder...
Shouldn't it then be:
6. Edit c:\temp\timetrex.ini.php, and copy the line that starts with salt= to the new c:\timetrex\timetrex\timetrex.ini.php ?
