I just read in the manual 4.16.3 Upgrading to another architecture
and will try the tips there to move my development MySQL to a new
production server. But I thought I could just copy all the database
files from one Linux-Box to another and use the exactly same
databases, users and data.
I mounted the dev-server via nfs (rw) as root and tried to copy the
/var/mysql (cp -ar) most things went well, but several (not all)
files from the mysql subdir could not be copied with a permission
denied error. I shut mysql down with no difference.
Is it possible to easily duplicate a MySQL-Installation from one
Intel-Linux to another keeping all data and users the same?
Thanks in advance for helping a newbie (probably this is to be
considered OT, as I probably just was unable to just use Unix
correctly :-( )
