Hi Kristine,

I’m going to put a tech support ticket in for you on this to get help completing your installation. You’ll see a separate message directly to you about that.

The embedded database is for testing purposes only and it’s a bad idea to put anything you want to keep in it. The migration from that database to MySQL is not particularly easy, so it’s much better to nip this in the bud and get set up with MySQL correctly before entering any data.

It looks like our MYSQL is not set up right to back up archivesspace because whenever we sign on it says we are using apache derby. Does anyone know if there is a way to set up MYSQL after we have already entered things into archivesspace? Will it mess anything up?
