Backup and migration
All configuration files and user database are located in the configuration directory. This directory also contains server’s SSH private keys, unless specified otherwise in the configuration file.
Migrating to another machine
Migrating Buru SFTP Server to another machine is a straightforward process.
Perform new installation of the software on the new machine. Do not start the services yet.
Copy all configuration files (except the private keys - more on that below) in the configuration directory from the previous installation to the new one, replacing existing files.We strongly discourage from copying SSH private keys unless the new machine is a replacement of the old one, with the same IP address and host name, or when it is part of a load balancing cluster.
When using custom SSH private key location, new keys can be generated using
Start the services on the new machine.
When migrating to a new server, you are allowed to temporarily exceed the number of purchased licenses for a period strictly necessary to perform the migration.
