Migrating From Parse To Back4App

Posted on 2016-08-02
Last Modified: 2016-08-24

We would like to migrate our app to back4app. We have already migrated our app database to mLab as we were planning to host our own parse server on AWS (but we have changed our mind). Now we have changed our plan and would like to host the app and the database on back4app.

Does anyone have any steps for this, as there doesn't seem to be much documentation on back4app, especially in the case where the database is already migrated away from

To play safe, do you mind paying a few bucks to back4app to let them do the job for you.

To migrate your database from MLab to us you need to dump your data, send us the database (or provide access to you MLab account) and our engineer team will re-create your app.
