Migration Notes

Saltbox recently swapped Docker images used for MariaDB. The migration path that is run for a default mariadb instance is roughly as follows:

  1. Dump all data to a dump.sql file
  2. Move /opt/mariadb to /opt/mariadb_legacy
  3. Provision a new mariadb container
  4. Import the dump.sql file

The dump file remains on disk at /opt/mariadb_legacy/dump.sql post-migration in the event manual intervention is required and the appdata for the legacy image remains on disk at /opt/mariadb_legacy.
