How to move metadata from one server to an other (no version upgrade)


I assume, I will need to

  • manually export/import the redash database from postgresql on old server to postgresql to new server
  • comment out the create_database() function from the provisioning script when installing redash on the new server

Can someone confirm that this will work and I don’t miss something here?



I’ve recently done this by following the guide from:

In my case, I also had to manually create the redash_reader role in postgres just before dumping the redash_backup.gz .
