Migrating to a new location…

I’ve got a functional 1.2.1 environment that I’m developing off of a subdomain like this:

v1.mysite.com

for internal reasons, I need to copy this to:

v2.mysite.com

I need to do a full copy (files and db).  Unfortunately a simple repoint to the new folder won’t do.

My plan was to just do a copy from the old directory to the new one like this:

cp * ../v2

...as well as a db copy.  I’m curious to know if anyone else has run into issues on this, or has any pointers for me before I begin.  Thanks in advance.

Forgot to mention…

I’m moving about 30,000 items.

This is all on the same server and I’m clear on how to setup my subdomains and everything.  I’m mostly just curious about any issues I may run into by cloning to the new location.

Hi Jeff,

Here’s a couple of links that provide some deeper reading into some known ‘Gotcha’s’.

http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/groups/227/downloader_upgrades_wrong_store

http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/groups/227/moving_magento_to_another_server

Hopefully these two articles should get you going in the right direction.

[edit] You should pay particular attention to the first article as it deals with a problem that will occurr when you change directory paths of your Magento installation.
