Moving to new svn repository

New svn repository is at so I use a dumb way. I have an very old database schema so this is the right time to flush outdated things out. Here are what I have done.

  1. create new installation folder say new_folder

  2. check out latest svn copy at that new folder svn co .

  3. create new database say new_db

  4. do a fresh new installation by pointing one of my spare subdomain to that new_folder

  5. deactivate all plugins at the existing installation, this is very important

  6. export existing database from the working installation excluding the 3 outdated tables which aren't used in the new schema

  7. import database into the new_db

  8. download this custom theme and upload it to the new_folder

  9. point this domain to the new_folder

  10. do a /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

That was it.
