[Archivesspace_Users_Group] RHEL 7 instance install question.

Good afternoon,

My situation is that I am setting up a new server and need to transfer our Archive Space instance to the new server  I realize that I need to copy the directories and the jar file but then I saw the item below and find it confusing.  I thought I would simply dump the database on the old server and then ingest it into MySQL on the new server.  After seeing this I am trying to figure out if I even need to do a 'migration' this since I have the versions in the table below and they are similar.

New Server
Old Server
AS version
Java version
MySQL version

  1.  Does anyone know if I need to do the migrations?
  2.  Is it simply a matter of running setup-database on the old server and then copying something to the new server?

  1.  That should be fine. I have openjdk version "1.8.0_265" on Ubuntu locally here.
  2.  I've run it on MySQL and Maria, old and new, and didn't see any trouble with the versions I tried. I normally run it on MySQL 5.7.

Good morning,

We are no longer going to be using the oracle java implementation due to licensing issues.  I am getting ready to upgrade our operating system on our current server to RHEL 7 and so I will probably be installing Version 2.8.

  1.  I see in the installation guide that I should use Java 1.8.   Can I use java-1.8.0-openjdk.x86_64?  I think so but just want to make sure.
  2.  Do you have a suggestion as to which database to install (MySQL or MariaDB) and which version of that?  I will migrating the database from the RHEL 6 server and just want to mitigate any possible issues that I might encounter.  I am currently running MySQL  Ver 14.14.
