2019: Video: Migrating Titan FTP Server to a new computer or VM

The process to migrate  Titan FTP Server 2019 from one server (OS) to another server is as follows:

1) Backup (Export) the following Windows Registry data path from the old server (Titan FTP 2017):

      Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\South River Technologies

      

2) Backup the User data and Security data (see highlighted in yellow below under the Directories tab of Files/Directories):
     
     
     
3) Move backups (see list below) to UNC or other neutral location for use on the new computer or VM.
      - South River Technology Registy Key (from step 1)
      - User Home Directory
      - SSL Certificate Store Directory
      - SSH Host Key Directory

4) Install Titan FTP 2019 (build 3675) on the new machine

5) Stop the Titan service on the new Windows server
      a. Run, Services.msc
      b. Search for Titan FTP Server Daemon

6) Restore the Registry data
      a. Copy the backed up registry file from old server (step 1) to the new server
      b. Double-click the backed up registry file

7) Restore the User and Security data by creating the same directory structure (i.e C:\CSUserFolder\Usr) respective of their correct directories as it was on the old server. In my case, I would create the following directories on my new server:

      User: C:\CSUserFolder\Usr\
      SSL Certificate Store Directory: C:\srtMftSecFiles\MySite\CertStore\
      SSH Host Key Directory: C:\srtMftSecFiles\MySite\HostKeys\

      b. Copy the RegCode and click Deactivate
      c. On new server, go to File menu and select License information
      d. Paste the RegCode and click Activate
