[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Archon to Archivesspace migration

Matt and Andrea,

If you are already running a 3.21 version of Archon, all you need to do is copy the latest release files onto your server, ensuring that the config.php files settings are retained.

All of the 3.21 versions of archon use the same database structure, so simply downloading the latest release and pointing it to an existing database will give you what you need to migrate.  You could even run both 3.21 in production at the current location, and 3.21 rev 3 in a different location, pointing at the same database.



(Admittedly, that is not all that clear on the existing readme, which is more focused around upgrades where there is a database change—which hasn't happened since the project went into support mode).

We are running into the same problem at our institution, and have the exact same situation with the versions. So far, we've run into enough walls that ArchivesSpace/LYRASIS has had to open a support ticket for us.

However, it would be fantastic to know if other people have found other answers to these questions...

Hello Archivesspace techs-

I am trying to use this tool to get my University's Archon data into Archivesspace.


The guidelines state that we need to start with 3.21 Rev 3 and our front page states that it is 3.21.  My questions are, where is the best place to find Archon upgrade instructions and also if anyone has used the tool successfully without starting from a 3.21 Rev3 system.
