Well, just sharing my manual yet working solution, I just stop the NodeBB process and do everything manual from there, including backing up my NodeBB folder and Redis DB.
Backup and Restore Process
Has anyone tried to backup site 1 and restore to site 2? Besides copying over the rdb file, does nodebb store anything else in folders that should be copied over to site 2?
public/uploadsfolder as well for uploaded files.
@baris thank you! I will give this a try.
