Transferring a course to the new moodle server is a straightforward process: create a backup of the course you want to move, download the backup file, and restore it on the new server. This post details each step.
Create a backup
Enter your course on moodleprior.trincoll.edu (moodleprior is the old moodle server, still full of courses and content). In the administration block, click on Backup.
This will bring up the backup settings. You will need to uncheck the box next to “Include enrolled users” in order to create a fresh course on the new server.
Restore on the new server
Log on to the new server, moodle.trincoll.edu, and enter your course. In the administration block, click on Restore.
Click Choose a file… and select the backup the file you downloaded (or drag and drop).
When your file has uploaded, click Restore.
This will take you to the Confirm screen, which will display details and settings. Again the default will be best for most purposes. Scroll to the bottom and click the Continue button.
In the Destination screen, scroll down to Restore into this course. Select whether you would like to Merge or Delete, then click Continue.
You are now complete!
Continue to your course.
