Cloning ERPNext Cloud to ERPNext On premise


Trust you are doing fine.

Has anyone ever clone a cloud Version(AWS) of ERPNext to an on-premise version.

If so, can you please share the steps and if any difficulties encountered.

Best Regards,

What exactly do you want to clone? The entire server, the database, the code?

Hi @rmeyer,

I want to clone the entire Server.

I want to move the entire system from cloud to On-premise.

Best Regards,

I think the answer depends on what infrastructure your server is running. In my cas i.e. ERPNext runds inside an LXD Container which lives on a cloud server. So I could use the LXD commands to copy that container to another Container host.

I never used aws, but I would guess there may be a way to create an image from your entire server, which you (with the corresponding knowledge) could reproduce on a local server (also probably as a VM).

Another way is to make a backup of the db and the attached files and restore that on a local instance of ERPNext. This method comes with the risk, that there may be inequalities in the 2 systems which may lead to problems on the restauration step (couldn’t say how likely it is for such problems to arise though)
