Rebuilding a server - keep config


Post by danzi » 14 Nov 2018 20:47

Hi All,

I am rebuilding XigmaNAS and want to keep my Syncthing config.

It only has receiving folders, since it's where I collect the backups.

Assuming the base setup would be the same:

Same IP
Same Name
Same mounts and folders

Can I just save Syncthing's config.xml and overwrite the one on the new machine before launching the service?

nope, pls backup whole 'config' Folder - there are some Files inside you need, such as *.pem Files
