[EP-tech] Re: Moving EPrints to a New server

I'm pretty sure this has been answered on the list previously, which is possibly why no-one has been inclined to reply. There is also a wiki: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Moving_a_repository.

The Linux distribution on your servers is irrelevant to the question of transferring the documents from one repository to another.

Subject: [EP-tech] Moving EPrints to a New server

Dear Friends:

I am re-sending this message as I cannot believe I have had no answers to it yet.  

We have a new server to which we plan to move our old repository.  This one was in Fedora, but the new server is in Debian.  
We have these questions for which we have not found answers in the

1.  	 We have stored some 645 documents already (using Fedora).  Can they
be exported somehow and then
imported to the EPrints in the new server using Debian?   We have v. 3.3.1
in the new server

2.	Our main interest is saving those 645 documents as they are, in
not to loose all the time and effort it took to create them in the repository. 

Thank you for your help.
