Moving RIPS

If you want to move your RIPS installation to another server you only have to move your data directory (by default /var/rips3) to the new server. Afterwards the RIPS installer can be used to start RIPS.


# Switch to root shell
sudo -s

# Create copy of the data directory
scp -rp root@old-rips-server:/var/rips3 /var/rips3

# Create installation directory with secure permissions
mkdir -p /opt/rips
chown root:root /opt/rips
chmod 750 /opt/rips

# Download installer and make it executable
wget -O /opt/rips/
chown root:root /opt/rips/
chmod 755 /opt/rips/

# Start RIPS
/opt/rips/ rips:start
