Hi Mike

Not a direct answer I'm afraid, but just to let you know I'm in the same situation and I'll be using ansible to deploy from test to production.

So  far it just covers software and content in our semantic store (which we're integrating with Geonode), but we can add ansible commands to copy geodata from postgres also. Actually my ansible playbooks are available if you're interested let me know and I'll shoot you the link. Not production-ready, but will give you an idea on the ansible approach.

Hello everyone.

I am a GeoNode newbie - perhaps this answer is obvious but I can't find it.

I have installed GeoNode using the apt packages on Ubuntu 14.04 for playing around/development purposes.

I have prototyped out some good stuff, and want to create a production GeoNode server by just doing a backup and restore of my current installation.

All of the docs at:
refer to (I think) legacy commands.  E.g. python manage.py backup (I think the geonode command line replaced the manage.py script recently maybe?)
Also the 'How to Backup/Restore with the GUI' section refers to sections of the GUI that do not exist anymore.

Anyone have any guidance on how to do this backup and restore?
