Backup / Restore

Postby calismoonelf » Sat Sep 10, 2016 9:01 am

After nearly 40 years of mostly good luck with computers, the past year has thrown me a series of very unfortunate events. My Subsonic server has moved from a Windows box to about 4 different Linux distros before I found one that I liked and that worked well on the old hardware. Each time I re-installed the OS, I lost all of my user settings. How hard would it be to create a cross-platform export and import feature for system settings? I will be migrating my server to new hardware in the near future, and it would sure be nice to have a way to quickly set up all of my user accounts with their preferences.

Thanks for listening.

I'm looking for this feature as well. Every time I move over to a new box, I have to create new users which isn't that much of a drama, however what I do miss is losing all my favourites, starred tracks and playlists. Without a UI backup/restore system it means I don't take advantage of all these features anymore for fear I keep losing them.

Currently, I have Subsonic installed on a FreeNAS device. Is there an easy way of taking my existing settings, playlists, favourites etc and putting them in the new install?
