Could not reach the /healthcheck/status with url after migration

Oracle Linux 8.5 (virtual box)

Hi, I have this problem where I installed a new passbolt server into my vm and everything worked fine and then I want to migrate the old server into the new one, there’s when the problem occur. I follow the step in here.

Every configuration that I made on the new server (before the migration is the same) as the previous one (e.g. database name, user name, etc) but it returns that it cannot reach the fullBasedUrl which worked on my previous and new server before migration.

This is the healthcheck:

This is what cake passbolt migrate looks like:

Netstat -pnuta:

Step taken to troubleshoot:
I also try run cleanup and datacheck and there is no result at all. I also add the servename into the nginx.conf still nothing change. I track the log which is

Permission denied in /path/to/Phpconfig.php on line 89

TIME_WAIT which mean that the three way handshake is incomplete as the state is not yet established. So, is it because of my network or the wrong step while following the guide on migration because I don’t even touch anything regarding network when I’m migrating. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi @Opah

Welcome to the forum! If the db is on the same server, try setting the db host to Does that make a difference?

No luck on that. I check on the log on mariadb and also nginx they return as below:

NGINX: /var/log/nginx/error.log

I’m pretty sure I have give necessary permission and authority for them to run smoothly.

Since this is a permission denied on /etc/passbolt/passbolt.php could you check the permissions on /etc/passbolt with ls -al?

I believe the issue will be this is set to www-data which is for debian based systems, and not nginx as it should be for oracle.

It looks like the guide you followed didn’t point out that difference. Our guide for this which points out the exact commands can be found here.

I think I would just follow passbolt doc on backup and migration but may I know the detail on migration after the files are transfer to the new server, are we just simply replace the new file with old file and then configure?
And passbolt on the new server, do I just install the passbolt or should I complete the “start configuration”?
Thank you.

For the new server you’ll have to do some configuration but not the web UI configuration as the settings there will be stored in the database and the passbolt.php file from your old server.

For the migration step this is to run the database migrations as often the new server will be on a newer version than the old one
