Backup from Ubuntu disk image
This is a little complex, but one of my Countly servers is inaccessible.... long story short, it's a VM running in Azure, and this is a bug that happens with Ubuntu version 15. I may be able to upgrade the machine to 16 by connecting the disk to another Ubuntu VM...
What I'm wondering is, if I connect the disk to another VM, if there is a way to copy or backup the Mongodb data to a new instance.
- Setup new version 16 of Ubuntu server
- Shut down Ubuntu 15 VM, disconnect disk
- Attach v15 disk to running v16 instance
- copy/import mongodb files to v16
Has anyone done anything like this?
