@meetdilip thanks but its not just me 🙂
Meet the team:
Hello! I figured this would be the best place to post this. I setup my NodeBB forum on Windows, but I'd like to move to Linux and still be able to keep my posts, categories, users, etc. Is there an easy way to import/export all my settings from Windows to Linux (and if so, would v 8.0 be okay to export to v 9.0 or will I need to re-do everything?).
The database should be OS agnostic, so if you transfer the database from Windows to Linux, it should work fine.
Specifics depend on the database, but just do a dump and import to the new host.
You can just copy the NodeBB directory and/or install fresh. Either will work. Just make sure to grab your config file with database specifics.
Awesome! Thanks for the answers!
