mod_migrate

Introduction

This module adds a command to prosodyctl for copying data between storage drivers.

Usage

prosodyctl mod_migrate example.com <source-store>[-<store-type>] <target-driver> [users]*

<source-store> would be e.g. accounts or private. To migrate archives, the optional suffix <store-type> would be set to archive, so e.g. archive2-archive or muc_log-archive. Multiple stores can be given if separated by commas.

<target-driver> is the storage driver to copy data to, sans the mod_storage_ prefix.

The process is something like this:

  1. Decide on the future configuration and add for example SQL connection details to your prosody config, but don't change the store option yet.
  2. With Prosody shut down, run prosodyctl mod_migrate example.com accounts sql
  3. Repeat for each store, substituting 'accounts'. E.g. vcards, private...
  4. Change the storage configuration to use the new driver.
  5. Start prosody again.

Examples

prosodyctl migrate example.com accounts,roster,private,vcard sql

Should work with 0.8 and later.
