How to migrate your stack
This documentation set has been merged with the Maestro Version 2 documentation and is officially deprecated. These pages will be redirected to their equivalents in that doc set within the next few weeks.
1. Set a failover group
- On your dashboard click on “Failover Groups”
- Add a new failover group
- Choose stack
Aas primary stack
- Click on “add group”
2. Add a CNAME record in your DNS provider dashboard
To point at the address provided in the failover group and wait for 24 hours to propagate. While you are waiting for the DNS to get propagated you can follow the steps till step 8.
If TTL of your DNS is 300 seconds you don’t need to wait just continue till the end.
3. Database backup
Aset backup for your databases (through add-ins)
4. Clone primary stack
Visit the stack page of stack
A, click “Clone” from the right sidebar. This will allow you to choose a new stack name and environment. Cloning your stack will preserve any environment variables from the existing stack, and also allows you to define where to deploy to along with other settings.
5. Add your database to backup stack
Add database or all the databases you need on to the stack
6. Set up a replication between two stacks
B go on stack page/database server (Redis, MySQL or etc.) and choose the server. On the right side bar click on “configure replication” choose stack A (you have to be Administrator on stack A otherwise it won’t be listed). This makes stack B databases slave for stack
7. Add the second stack to the failover group
to add stack B as a backup to failover group, edit the related failover group and add stack B as a backup stack
Make sure DNS record for the failover group is populated
8. Put the primary site in to maintenance mode:
- Go to the Stack page of
- Click on Configure Network / Redirects
- Check “Put stack in Maintenance Mode” box
9. Change the second database master
Do the step 6 but this time in the drop-down menu choose “No data source” (this makes
B’s db, master)
10. Switch to the new stack
Go to the failover group and switch to
We recommend you keep the DNS on the failover group to make this procedure easy in the future.
11. [OPTIONAL]Switch your DNS record to the new stack
You can now point your DNS to stack
