Import projects to Youtrack 6 from 5.2

Hello,

We have a standalone youtrack 5.2 instance hosting 4 projects and I need to add another 3.

I got the email abpout version 6 today and just want to confirm that this is possible before I start on it.

Our 5.2 instance was installed on a hyper-v host so needs to be moved onto a dedicated vm.

Instead of migrating I'm planning on installing 6 with the trial license setting up the new projects and then importing the old projects and applying the license before the end of the trial.

Thanks

Dan

Hello Dan,

You may import projects with this import script.

I have set up the new youtrack on the vm and have followed the instructions but I am getting an error:

When I execute the command in python I get:

File "<stdin>!, line 1
<command>
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

If I run from an administrative command prompt I get:

  File "youtrack2youtrack.py", line 45
    """ % os.path.basename(sys.argv[0])
      ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

A previous (old) thread mentioned using youtrack2youtrack for real-time replication between 2 YouTrack servers. Is this still possible? I noticed the how to page says, "If you try to re-import same project several times, then you must delete previously imported data before the next attempt." Does this mean I must run a separate command to clear all data from the project before re-importing?

My ideal situation would be to run youtrack2youtrack in a cronjob every 5 to 15 minutes.

Thanks for the help.

Hello.
I also try to move projects from version 5.2.4 to version 6.0. When you try to restore a backup from the web interface does not start. When you try to import using scripts tolerated project, but without it available issues.
Script when transferring writes:

All this is done on a virtual machine in Ubuntu Server 12.04.
Server clean, no projects. Writes the same thing when you try to import from 5.2.4 to version 5.2.4
What am I doing wrong?
