I was asked to help someone export their Taiga site as they are changing hosting providers. I’m totally new to Taiga (WordPress is my realm) so fumbling around a bit. I managed to get command line access to their server (Digital Ocean) and downloaded the /home/ directory but am struggling to get the database (I wasn’t given a db name, user, or password). I’m able to log into the Taiga admin. but don’t see a backup or export function there (I see export available only for individual projects).
Can someone please guide me in what must be a pretty simple procedure? I tried following the official Taiga procedure at Backup and restore Taiga but it says “the program docker is currently not installed.”
If you want to move all services from one cloud to another (or kind of), you may create a dump (pg_dump should help) and restore it in the destination. For this action, you need access to the database (same as you would do with wordpress). Same would happen with the media data that the user uploads (images and attachments).
Docker would be needed if the installation was made with docker, but if it’s not installed, I’m assuming you are dealing with a baremetal installation, aren’t you?
