Transfer ERPNext from one server to another


It is possible to transfer ERPNext from one server to another with all data, settings and customization ?
Example : I have an ERPNext instance in my digital ocean server running ubuntu 14.4 . I made some customization’s to look and feel via modifying HTML,CSS and JS files , added several custom fields and I have data also . Now If I want to transfer it to my Amazon EC2 server running Ubuntu 14.4 also what steps I need to take ?

Thanks in advance


  1. Setup ERPNext on your Amazon instance.
  2. Download Backup from Digital Ocean instance. This backup will also include your customizations.
  3. Restore backup in your Amazon instance.

Thanks man . That is a great help .
