Ez cms 2.0 need help migrating old site to new server

I was just tasked with moving our old multisite from our hosting provider to our new internal server. The login page says ez cms 2.0. I was trying to install ezplatform onto ubuntu 18.04 with no success. I was wondering if someone on here could help me figure this out. I have an archive of the entire sites root. Not sure if there was a database or not, the site looks static. index.cfm, sitemap.xml web.config. I’m assuming theres a database somewhere but no word if I’ll be able to get that or not.

Hi, and welcome! When you say “ez cms 2.0”, the first thing to verify is that it is really eZ Platform v2.0, and not something else named “ez”. You should see the term “eZ Platform” somewhere. Assuming this is the case.

Yes, there should be a database somewhere. Without access to that, migration will be difficult.

v2.0 is no longer supported and receives no security updates, so the site should be upgraded at least to v2.5: https://doc.ezplatform.com/en/latest/updating/updating_ez_platform/
…and optionally to v3.0: https://doc.ezplatform.com/en/latest/updating/upgrading_to_v3/

As for Ubuntu, our recommended setup there is Ubuntu 19.10: https://doc.ezplatform.com/en/latest/getting_started/requirements/
but 18 should work as well. You need PHP 7.3 with certain PHP packages included, and a certain version of the DBMS you will be using, see the above link.

I hope this helps!

I’m starting to get the feeling that this isn’t ez platform. the login page is located at “URL/ezpublisher” and the logo in the top right says “EZ CSM 2.0” It’s written in Cold Fusion, hosted on IIS and I can’t for the life of me find it on the internet. I think it’s a proprietary system that the marketing company created. I have since decided to convert the sites to a static HTML pages using chrome and vs code. I have enough HTML experience that I was able to get one site to work. We are going to be eventually recreating these sites using our Wordpress Multisite. Thanks for the help though.
