Hi Shannon,

We are in the midst of this as well.   Our IT is currently trying to move us from the ASpace default setup to an Apache environment (also so we can sync with Preservica).  It hasn't been easy as they haven't found any instructions on how to move ASpace over. I can only share the steps I know we've had to go through so far.  If your IT hasn't yet, they will need to register with a service like godaddy or Windstream so you can get an external IP and internet DNS record.  For example we added a subdomain to our Curtis.edu website, archspace.curtis.edu through Windstream.  After you are migrated, your original ports: staff, API, and public either need to be added to the URL or proxied via httpd.

I'll be keeping the basic archspace.curtis.edu for the public and changing the URIs for the staff and admin logins.

Let me know how it goes!

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] moved ArchivesSpace to a different server, no longer able to access

We hired a consultant to set up ArchivesSpace for our institution and migrate our data from Archivists' Toolkit.  Recently, as part of an effort to synchronize ArchivesSpace with Preservica (our digital preservation system), our IT department moved the ArchivesSpace server off the Frick domain and moved it to the DMZ, it now has a new IP address.  After the move, I'm not able to access ArchivesSpace through the same browser address.  Can anyone help me out with what our IT staff can do to resolve this issue, anything specific they can reconfigure on the server? Since they did not set up the server, they do not know how to proceed.
