Moving History logs to new system

Post by kjKmcQN3 » 08 Jul 2018, 19:00

I would like to install NZBGet on a new system and migrate over all of my settings. I gather that backing up the .conf file and restoring from it will take care of the settings. However, I would also like to migrate my download history. Is this possible to do and if so how? I am running NZBGet on macOS, which is the OS I will run on the new systems as well. Thanks.

You need to move directory set via option QueueDir. On the source system use menu icon -> Show in Finder -> Queue directory. On target system after starting nzbget use the same command. Then shutdown nzbget, replace directory content and start nzbget again.

You should now have the old queue, history and download statistics. Per-server statistics may be gone if you replace queue files first and then the config file. Therefore it's better to move config and queue at once. The config file is near queue directory and you can move it manually (instead of using config backup/restore feature in webui).
