Migrating Odoo Websites from Other Providers
This article lists the steps on how to migrate Odoo websites from other providers.
1. Back up Odoo database and Odoo addons directory

You can also export your odoo database by using the
su - postgres pg_dump db_name > /path/to/odoo/addons/db_backup.sql
db_name is the name of the database you need to export;
db_backup.sql will be the file name of the exported database;
/path/to/odoo is your Odoo directory.
1.2 Back up Odoo addons directory
Create an archive of all addons files with the following command:
tar -zcvf odoo_backup.tar.gz /path/to/odoo/addons/*
2. Migrate the backup to Cloud Clusters
2.1 Transfer backups
Currently, two methods are available for file transfer: File Manager and FTPs. We recommend FTPs if the file size is over 50MB.
2.2 Manage the directory via web shell
Please make sure the Odoo addons directory has been moved to the path " /cloudclusters/odoo/addons" and has been unpackaged. You can check it by running the following commands in the web shell:
cd /cloudclusters/odoo/addons tar -xvf odoo_backup.tar.gz
