We are in the processing of decommissioning the server that PageGate Version 7 currently runs on. We have purchased Version 10 and will be installing it on a new server. Is it possible to transfer my settings, users, and groups to the new server, and between the version and if so how?

The information is entirely transferrable and here are the steps you'll want to run through:

1) On the old PageGate server, make a backup copy of the PageGate database (file name: pagegate.mdb). To determine where the file is located, open the PageGate Admin and go to Program - Settings.

2) On the new server, install PageGate version 10.
Specific steps to install can be found here:
https://www.notepage.net/manuals/pg/v10/server/html/installation_by_single_executa_2.htm
https://www.notepage.net/videos/pagegate-v10-installation.htm

3) After installing PageGate version 10, right click on the shortcut for the PageGate Admin and left click 'Run as Administrator'

4) When prompted for the default setup information, click Apply.

5) When it prompts you to create a few directories, please do so.

6) You should then receive a notification that a new database has been created. Click OK.

7) Copy the old server's database in to the PageGate version 10 server's database directory.

8) When prompted, you do want to overwrite the existing file.

9) Right click on the shortcut for the PageGate Admin and left click 'Run as Administrator'

10) When prompted, you do want to upgrade the database.

11) After the upgrade is finished, you'll be prompted for your version 10 registration key. Enter it and click Apply.

12) Click OK, then Close, then OK again.

13) Right click on the shortcut for the PageGate Admin and left click 'Run as Administrator'

14) Go to Program - Settings.

15) In the 'Run PageGate as' section, select: Windows Service

16) Click Apply.

17) When prompted for credentials, leave them blank and click Apply again.

18) When 'Switching Run Styles' goes away, open the Windows Services list.

19) Find and start the PageGate service, if it hasn't already started.

If you need anything else, please let us know!
