Migration to Version Controlled Documentation


In October 2018 we started to use the new Version Controlled Documentation developed in ObjectGears system and all the current articles had to be migrated into it. How did we cope with that? If you are considering migration to a new system for web content management, you can get inspired by our case study.

get inspired by our case study of Knowledge base migration

The migration was split into several phases.

  1. preparation - back up of the old documentation  and installation of the new ObjectGears instance with model Version Controlled Documentation
  2. import - import of files with data into the database
  3. data cleansing
  4. final release of the documentation to the production server and publishing

We have used Administrator tool for converting all the text files into the database. You can read the whole article in the case study.
