Transferring courses to new server

Transferring courses to new server

I am trying to transfer courses to a new server by archiving the courses on the original server, transfering the tarred/zipped files to the new server, and unarchiving them there as admin.

However, if I archive the courses as admin in the original server, after unarchiving the in the new server, I cannot login as the instructor, using the same login/pass combination. This only works if I archive the course as the instructor, which is inconvenient as an administrator. Is there a way around this?

Also, I found out that even though all courses created on the original server had the option of defining the administrators as intructors checked, for some reason I cannot log into the courses as admin...

Any help would be appreciated.
