I have set up a local instance for testing before I had access to the server and set up a lot of things there - now before going productive I am facing some questions:
What's the best way to migrate from the test environment to the productive server? What I've done so far is:setting up nodebb and mongo on the new server mongodump the test environment and zip the nodebb folder in the test environment installing all the plugins on the new server
What's next? Would it be a good idea to simply restore the db and dump the saved nodebb folder on the new server or is this having critical effects/not working at all?
Moreover, I just noticed that the version on the new server is newer (v2.5.7 vs v2.5.2) than in the test environment. So I don't want to upgrade now my test environment so that worst case I can just use it to recreate the new setup. Therefore I thought about downgrading the new installation - but how? Simply download the previous version and then run the upgrade command again? Or is this minor changes not even noticable and I can try to ignore it?
So many questions but there is not so much documentation available - at least those I find and understand as a non dev guy. Thx for your help!
