Moving our database

We have 4 users sharing a database, each using their own settings at their PC.  We have the "database files" living on a workstation and are interested in  moving it to our new server.  We have a concern.

 

Activity series making the move? Any idea's or concerns about them working after the database files move to the server?

 

Thank you for any input or experiences you may share with us!

Re: Moving our database

Always a good idea to indicate the ACT! version... not all versions would have the same answer.

 

So, assuming ACT! 2008?

 

To move the database, use backup/restore as per this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/3k4ewx

 

I think the Activity Series should be ok

 

Don't delete the db from the old machine till you've tested on the new one.

Re: Moving our database

thank you for your feedback, and yes, the version is a good idea..new at this, so was not thinking that way.  We are ACT! by Sage 2008 (10.0) Version 10.0.3.182, Hotfix 1---waiting to install 2009 until the move it complete and we know the issues are not related to update!
