I installed YT6(as the following picture showed), but there was no "teamsysdata" folder, but I know the database was in "C:\ProgramData\JetBrains\YouTrack\data\youtrack", so I stopped YouTrack service, cleaned this folder, and extracted my backup file to this folder, then I started YouTrack service again. But when I opened in browser, I got this err: "Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 503 (Service Unavailable)"

Hi, I received this mail:

Hello Tal,

</MAIL-CONTENT>

But the text "... we migrated all data to this one." doesn't contain any link...

Since that mail came from "noreply@whatever..." I couldn't reply...

Anyway, here is the info:

Distribution type: MSI
YouTrack version: 6.5 (both source and destination)
Backup method: from the "Administration" menu -> "Database Backup" -> "Backup database now..." button

Any idea?

Hello Tal,

Could you please clarify, did you install MSI 6.5 from scratch or did you upgrade it previously from 6.0 (or earlier versions) ?

Commonly, the proper procedure is following:

- stop current YouTrack server

- copy database to target location on new server

- run 6.5 MSI on new server-> proceed with Upgrade option

- select path to your database 

If it doesn't help, please uninstall MSI 6.5 on new server (from Windows -> Uninstall Programs) and run it once again with this command:

msiexec /i  youtrack-xxxxx.msi    /l*v install.txt

(https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/YTD65/Installing+YouTrack+with+MSI+Distribution, "Troubleshooting" section).

Hi, firstly thank you for your assistance.

I installed a v6.5 MSI from scratch (how do I check the exact build number?) on machine A. I now installed v6.5 MSI on machine B to which we want to move the DB.

Where is the database? is it a single file or directory?

Hello Tal,

You are welcome.

It's a directory. Please check this guide for how to find database: https://youtrack-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206546369-When-we-ask-you-to-provide-additional-details-logs-database-HAR-etc- .

I'd suggest to

- uninstall YouTrack on new server.

- put database to new server. 

- run 6.5 MSI installation wizard and choose Upgrade option. Set path to your database.
