I am playing around with ERPNext and potentially want to start using it at some point in the near future. I use a pretty recent ‘official’ Virtual Box appliance and wonder whether it would be difficult to transfer your entire ERPNext system from such a VM to local deployment.
I was considering to whether just using the disk image of the Virtual Box appliance but I assume somewhat that this is maybe not the ideal setup of a production system.
So, can you just take a backup of the database and load it into a new environment without any big difficulties? If that would be the case I might just start setting up ERPNext in a Virutal Box VM and once I have managed to setup an installation on our local server (ubuntu 14.04, I might be setting up docker there and put ERPNext in a container) just transfer my database to that.
