Import or Restore a CE backup to EE same version


Is there any published methodology for moving data from a CE server backup to a (different) EE server?

I have a good backup from a CE server 8.9.6 and a new EE 8.9.6 on a different host

The restore process considers them different versions so won’t run.

Is there a simple way to do this?




You can do this by following the steps below:

  1. Downgrade the new EE to CE by following this guide:

    • NB: Make sure you downgrade to the same exact version as the CE version of your production server
  2. You can then upgrade the ‘non-live’ CE server that contains the backed up data to EE by following the steps outlined here:

Thank you very much. I’ll follow that sequence.
