Hi everyone.

I'm working on Alfresco Community v4.2.0
(r63893-b12) schema 6033
Spring Surf and Spring WebScripts - v1.2.0
(Release 1331)

I installed it using the bundle pakage at Centos 6.4 64 bits, and the space on disk is running out, I gotta migrate Alfresco to a new server.

Following this tutorial

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/System_Migration

I got some querys about it.

Here is the steps

1.-Stop Application Server (ensures no one can make changes while backing up or restoring) —-No problem at this step.

2.-Export the database to Alfresco dir.root (same location as content and indexes)—-I got confuse at this point. Because this is what I have on my Alfresco global properties file:

### database connection properties ###
db.driver=org.postgresql.Driver
db.username=user8888
db.password=mipassword
db.name=jun1414——————————————is this the db name, that Alfresco uses to storage data????
db.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost:666/${db.name}


Reading documentation for postgresql for exporting database, I did this: psql –username=user8888 and typed my password, and then I listed the db on the server


psql \list
                                  List of databases
   Name    |  Owner   | Encoding |  Collation  |    Ctype    |   Access privileges  
———–+———-+———-+————-+————-+———————–
postgres  | postgres | UTF8     | en_US.UTF-8 | en_US.UTF-8 |
template0 | postgres | UTF8     | en_US.UTF-8 | en_US.UTF-8 | =c/postgres
                                                             : postgres=CTc/postgres
template1 | postgres | UTF8     | en_US.UTF-8 | en_US.UTF-8 | =c/postgres
                                                             : postgres=CTc/postgres
(3 rows)

The database jun1414 doesn't show up.

I'm wondering what happend here, I'm not able to export database because I do not know where is the database that Alfresco is using.

Please someone throw me a bone here


Thanks in advance.
