Hello! I’m a sysadmin and relatively new in this whole specify “universum” and i have (maybe) a dumb question. But i don’t found a answer to my question. So im gratefull for some advice.
We have a Specify6 MYSQL-Database running aside on a Host and there is one person “developing” forms and “stuff” for it with Specify6 (looks that it’s easyer to develop the forms etc). The goal is to use Specify7 at the end. So we build a dockerized environement (all in one).
For now im taking the backup/dump of the specify6 Database to “initialize” the docker environement for specify7. That works without any issues. So, im just placing the dump in the folder and redeploy the docker container.
So my question: It’s some “magic” happening during the initialisation? Or could we just point Specify6 Client to the Specify7 Database and work directly with Specify6 on the Specify7 Database? Legit or “don’t do it”?
Thanks for an Advice.
