Exit SpiceworksIf Spiceworks is running, stop Spiceworks by right-clicking the system tray icon and selecting "Exit", or, if Spiceworks is running as a service, stop the service.
CENTRAL INSTALLATION: You also need to take all of your Remote Collectors offline to be absolutely sure you don't miss any tickets/updates.
Delete Database InformationNavigate to the Spiceworks directory on the new installation and delete the "data" and "db" folders.
Transfer Your Backup To New InstallationFind the zip file created when you backed up Spiceworks and extract the "data" and "db" folders contained within. Move these folders into the new Spiceworks installation's folder. When you start up Spiceworks next, your old database will be waiting for you.
REMOTE COLLECTORS: You need to completely uninstall Spiceworks from the old location before bringing the new installation online. It is very important that your Spiceworks installation from the old location never be online at the same time as the new location. Once you bring the Remote Collector back online in the new location, it should connect to your central installation automatically.
Central Installation Additional Step (for Remote Collectors & Agents)First, bring your Central Installation back online. Then start up your Remote Collectors and Agents again. Now you'll need to access each of the Remote Collectors and Agents, and then update the host name or IP Address that they use to access your Central Installation. Once you get those updated, the Remote Collectors and Agents should connect again without you having to enter the authorization code again.
Recreate your Backup SettingsAll of your settings will stay intact when you move your installation, except the backup settings. They revert to default. If you have customized your backup, you'll need to update this after you perform the move.
