Applies to installations done with our automatic installer, LabCollector Server Manager.

Follow this steps:

1/ Install LabCollector with the automatic installer on the new Windows machine (see KB-27).
2/ Copy mysql/data/lab[collector] from the old to the new server (on other name if you have customized the lab name)
3/ Also transfer www/lab[colletor]/documents /extra_modules, /files, and /maps to the new server location
4/ If the old installation was an older version than on the new one, execute http://computer_name/instance_name/upgrade.php to level up the old database to the current version.

NOTE: you may need to purchase an upgrade option.
