This guide walks you through the steps required to transfer to openredis from an existing setup.
The following steps assume that your existing Redis database is still running.
It is very important that you don't shut it down – not until everything is backed up, and your openredis instance has synced with your existing database.
Signup for one of our plans. You can read more about that in our Guide to Subscribing article.
Open your openredis dashboard.
Configure your instance as a slave of your existing Redis database. See our master-slave article for additional help regarding that.
Configure your application to point to the
OPENREDIS_URL you just signed up for.
Promote your instance to master.
Shutdown your existing Redis database. Make sure that you've successfully transitioned before you do this.
At this point in time, we don't allow loading up your openredis instance with an external dump.rdb or appendonly.aof -- at least not through our API or web dashboard.
