  1. Emby server Server backup plugin Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS Client: Firefox Quantum 62.0 (64-bit) The story so far: Fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 Download and install Emby server from https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases/download/ Enter my Premier subscriber key Install the backup plugin Restore my backups from backups.tar.gz from old system, into /home/emby/emby-backups Launch Emby, launch backup plugin. No luck. Just in case, make sure permissions are in place, even though no specific errors in logs: sudo chmod -R 755 /home/emby/ sudo chown -R emby:emby /home/emby/ Launch Emby, launch backup plugin Browse to any backup Result: backup screen hangs with loading indicator Log files: logs indicate that plugin is reaching endpoint ok, and browsing the JSON at http://localhost:8096/emby/MBBackup/Backups correctly displays restorable content of backup files (time, date, profile, users, etc). It seems like just the UI is hanging for some reason? Most recent log attached. Additional information: previous server was Emby 3.2.x on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, same backup plugin version, and these same backups restored successfully there. Unfortunately the old server was destroyed and no longer exists, only the archived backups. embyserver.txt
  2. Hello All! I've been using Emby Server on Windows for quite a while, but decided to shift to a NAS based server. I started with the Synology DS218. I've used the Backup and Restore Plugin multiple times in the past when reloading Emby Server on both the same and new PC's and never had any issues. I've search the forum looking for the answer, but haven't been able to find anything. ** SETUP ** I ran through the tutorial for setting up Synology Folder Permissions, giving the "embsvr" user read/write access to all folders, then rebuilt the library structure and migrated the media files to the NAS. The libraries have populated and display correctly in the home page of the NAS-based Server (Multiple "(500) Internal Server Error" related to FanArt.TV, but I read on other threads that this was fairly common and may resolve itself.) Because the libraries are displayed, I am assuming my permissions are correctly set up, but I could be mistaken. Both the Windows-based Server and the NAS-based Server are running the same version of the Backup & Restore Plugin ( ** PROBLEM ** I'd like to restore the user information from my Windows-based Server. I ran a backup from the Windows-based Server, transferred the folder to the NAS, but when I click on the backup file from the plug-in page, all I get is a perpetual "thinking" circle with no options or error messages on the screen. When looking in the logs, I see a "could not find handler" error... (see attached log). ** QUESTIONS ** Why would the server not be able to find the handler for a plugin that was just installed? Is the handler different in the Windows-based Server and the NAS-based Server so the file created on the Windows-based Server is unreadable by the NAS-based Server? Did I miss something else in the server setup that would prevent the "embsvr" user from accessing some of the program files?

    Migration question

    Hi guys, I am in the process of migrating an emby server from a cubietruck (armhf) to a TV box running Armbian for AMLOGIC devices (aarch64). I was planning on following the instructions for manual migration in the wiki. However, I was wondering whether given I have the exact same path for my media files as before, can I not just copy the library.db as well? What I am doing is, I am mounting two folders from my NAS (one for movies, the other for TV shows) using NFS to the exact same location they were on before and that is then also my media path. Cheers, chessplayer
  4. I use emby along with an rclone mounted google drive and every time it scans the library for new media, it takes a lot of time and bandwidth as well. Now, that's fine for regular use, but, I want to move my server to another computer. And, it looks like I need to re-scan everything and last time, it took 3-4 full days to do that. Is there a better way to migrate the metadata along with the server? I tried storing the metadata along with the media items. But, on testing with a few folders, it seems to be replacing the old nfo files and metadata with new ones after scanning the media again. Is it supposed to do that?
  5. I'm using Emby in a docker and just wanted to ask whether I can move the complete config folder to a new server and set up the docker in the exact same way, with the same paths for the library, user and permissions. Will that "just work"? I read about the backup and restore plugin, but I don't want to rescan my library.

    Backup plugin fails with error

    I am currently an Emby Premiere member, and have installed the Backup plugin. Unfortunately, backups currently fail with the following error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Full errors available in this pastebin: https://pastebin.com/T8uLdNPm The expected outcome of a scheduled task with this plugin should be a valid backup. I am currently running Emby server on Raspberry Pi 3, 1Gb RAM, 16Gb local storage, 4 cores. OS is Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.3 (stretch). Thank you! Michael

    Ghost Playlists?

    Hello Community, The drive in my server recently crashed, but thankfully I have been using the Backup plugin, so restoring my config was easy. Everything is working perfectly, but I panicked when I went to play a music playlist, and they were all missing. I created a new playlist, and suddenly all the playlists reappeared. Relevied, I deleted the playlist I just started and all the playlists disappeared again. When I create a new playlist, the others appear, but only when I navigate to Music --> Playlists. If I use the hamburger menu and navigate directly to Playlists, they do not appear. Is there a glitch here or something I can do to make them work properly? Thanks, Jason

    Asustor updates wipes data

    Hi, Can somebody please tell me why -- Every Time EMBY does an update IT WIPES EVERYTHING BACK TO A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION ?? The last update (a couple of months ago) also wiped Emby back to a new installation, and since then I have been painstakingly setting it back up AGAIN -- the TV shows, movies and for the last 3 weeks my CD library. And today App Central informs me there is an update to vers. 3.0.6020.r1 .... and I (as I have now found out) foolishly allowed the update to occur ... Emby restarts and it is BLANK !!!! JUST AS IF I JUST INSTALLED IT FOR THE FIRST TIME !!!!! I use the Plugin "Server Configuration Backup" .. So I re-installed it, restarted Emby and ran the last backup which was saved last night --- and it did ... wait for it .... Nothing ! So I restarted Emby again, re-ran the Backup and restored from the last save and waited, around 10 minutes later, noticed some things starting to appear (looks like you can't rush it). So have I got to completely re-setup EMBY EVERY TIME THERE IS AN UPDATE ? And if so - WHY ?? PLEASE HELP !!!!! (Added this morning) So the restore started last night about 8pm .. it is now 6am and the restore is still running - the scan is up to 69.2% Not sure if it is still the 1st scan from the restore last night, or the scheduled scan due 4.30am every day, but the scheduled scan usually takes about 20min ... so this is taking a lot longer. But still I do want to ask the programmers - Does Emby have to wipe itself every time there is an update on the Asustor version ??
  9. When I restored a backup created on Emby Server in Windows to an Emby Server on Linux, the watched status data for my users is there for movies & TV shows flawlessly. I keep my soccer videos separate in a Home Photos & Videos library. I noticed the watched status did not transfer. What factors could be leading to this? Is watched status tracked for this kind of library or should I be using a different type of library?

    Can't Use Backups

    Hi All, My system SSD failed on me so I have had to re install everything. I tried to use configuration backup but that is having issues so I completely removed Emby, created the Emby-Server folder in appdata/roaming and did it the old fashioned way by just copying the latest backup, but this hasn't restored anything, no users, no playlists, no libraries etc. All of my shares are exactly the same name. Any help? Windows 10 Latest beta Emby release
  11. Just set up a new server and I'm trying to restore via the server configuration backup plugin; however, I must be missing something because it doesn't appear to be doing anything when I try to restore a backup. These are the logs: https://pastebin.com/eYfg39YQ Am I just doing it wrong? I can post machine specs if needed, but this is on Windows 10. Wait, my premiere isn't linked.... Stand by. Didn't matter. Still doesn't want to back up. Same error as logs posted above. Edit: Found the other recent post about this. My computer is named the same, directories are the same. Do I need to setup my library before doing a restore? I assume paths, libraries, etc will be restored so I haven't done anything with it yet.

    Restore from Time Machine?

    Managed to trash my server somehow in one move, made one setting change (public https port number) in the process of setting up https in advanced, saved setting, clicked restart, and it hung there without restarting. Did system reboot, etc. all the standard stuff, app would seem to run, but refused to stay open when attempting to open dashboard, could see it drop out of processes in Activity Monitor when accessed. Tried reinstall of latest package, still no joy. The only thing I could think of as a factor is the machine OS was recently updated to 10.12.5, but emby seemed to be working fine after that update until I tried the config change/restart. Tried restoring emby app and emby-server files in ~/.config using Time Machine backup from yesterday, no dice. On the theory of it being an issue with 10.12.5, I did a complete system restore from yesterday prior to the update to bring it back to 10/12.4, and that didn't work either. So, I trashed the app file and the emby-server config file again, and started an install from scratch. That seems to be working just fine, but it's going to take me several hours to get back to where I was, and will have lost track of a bunch off-air recording data, etc. What is going on here that I'm missing in terms of where files are located? And why is this config so difficult to restore from a backup?

    Got Myself into Trouble

    Hello All, The hard disk in my server went bad on me, and I've just discovered that the backup plugin hasn't run in over 2 months. I was able to retrieve all the data from the bad disk, so I have all the files and I've tried rebuilding Emby server using the instructions here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/10427-how-to-migrate-emby-server/ I found the source files in the Roaming folder (Emby-Server), but some of the paths don't seem to match the guide exactly. I also used SQL to move the users over, but the users don't show. Also, I can see the playlists in the folder, but they do not appear inside Emby. Is there any hope, or should I just start from scratch? The main things I care about are the playlists and the watch history. Thanks in advance. Jason

    Can't restore using backup plugin

    I had some serious issues after changing some recording settings for Live TV. I tried pointing the directory to my normal TV directory and point movies into my normal movie directory. After doing this and saving, Emby got into some infinite loop of library scanning and kept adding "Recording" folders like Recording1, Recording11, Recording111, Recording1111, etc. I had to shut down the server because it would start up and become unresponsive and I couldn't even access settings to change it back. I have been using the backup plugin, so I just decided to reinstall Emby and restore from yesterdays backup. Well after reinstalling and configuring the backup plugin, I see my 5 most recent backups, but clicking on them does nothing. Am I missing something on how to restore? For now I have tried manually putting files back onto the NAS in (what I think is) the proper locations. I have noticed my users didn't come back (even though there are users backed up and I think I put them back in the correct location, ProgramData-Server/Config/Users). There are also user folders under "userdata" in the backup that I can't find a corresponding folder on in the NAS. Long story short, is there a way to restore the backups using the plugin so that it "just works"?
  18. I'm a premium supporter and have the Server Configuration backup. Due to some previous issues with Emby, and also for some other reasons, I decided to stop fighting with all the legacy crap on my media server, and did a fresh reinstall. I reinstalled onto a new drive, so I still have full access to the old system. However, restoring my backup via Server Config backup plugin didn't work. Steps taken: Clean install of Windows 7 Clean install of latest Emby Server ( Fresh backup made on old Emby (3.0.6050.0) Install the backup plugin on new Emby Browse the backup - all users are seen, migration options are to create same-named users, options for plugin restore etc are all checked Press the restore button, accept the warnings Page refreshes and puts me on the Dashboard Check the Users and Plugins sections, nada I've done this with Chrome but also tried in Firefox (after reading a similar thread). I also followed the migration guide for manual migration, but I was getting Syntax error at or near INSERT from DB Browser for SQLite, so I could get my plugins restored manually, but still no user accounts or media browsing data. The only thing I can think is that there's some issue with paths (the old install is at Mediabrowser-Server unser %appdata%, while the new one is at Emby-Server) but it doesn't seem likely. Or then some weird permissions issue. Or the previously linked thread where user plasmon mentions that: I'll look into this a little further but it's doubtful. I'm out of ideas otherwise. Any help would be much appreciated. Log.txt

    Ubuntu 14.04 Configuration Backup Fail

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I couldn't find a dedicated forum for it. Simply cannot get the Server Configuration Backup Plugin to work, get an error trying to create a profile and immediate fail when trying to run it. I'm guessing it's a permission error of some description but the backup path is owned by emby user and group so I'm at a bit of a loss. Any help appreciated as I need to upgrade Emby but very reluctant to without a working backup of all userdata and config.
  20. Hello, recently I had to reinstall my server. For continuity, I installed Emby on another server and copied the whole Emby-direcotry C:\Users\mediacenter\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server to the new server. After that, - changed ports - changed display name and both server where running. Great! However, I noticed when tried to connect from outside my network, I could reach both servers, but there were always issues with connecting: showing wrong displayname, connecting to wrong server etc... I think that (internally) there is some ID that identifies the server, and that this has to be changed. Therefore my question: - is above supported (thus not migrating to other server, but copying config to new server and have both servers up and running, i.e. for disaster recovery procedures) - should I change this ID somewhere kind regards, Bart

    Backup Restore / Playlists

    Hello, I have just refreshed my server OS and emby, I have used backup and everything seems to have gone quite well. Just to report the small problems with the restore, The homescreen settings haven't copied over Playlists haven't copied into the profile, they are there in the cache but not on my user profile. Is there any way that I can import playlists, and would it possible in future to share playlists with other users, would be a great little feature.

    Play state not restored from backup

    I am migrating my server from 1 computer to another. I installed the Server Configuration Backup plugin and made a backup that included everything, including user data. When I restored from the backup, I see the backup did contain this info and the checkboxes were selected when I restored from the backup. But when I view my collections, both from the web interface, and from the android app, the play state was not synched. Did I do something incorrect, or is there another step somewhere?
  23. It would be nice to have a function to backup our Collections or maybe even our entire Libraries and the ability to Restore them. This is why: 1. I have some Collections that I have had to create manually. Examples are Jeane-Claude Van Damme Movies. He made allot of movies and I like to keep them all together. I have 22 movies in this collection. Abbott and Costello 34 movies. Vincent Price over 20 movies. Collections of various kid movies. 2. In my Movie Library, there always seem to be a few movies that do not pull the correct meta data or images. I have to manually straighten these out by entering the data directly and uploading my own images. 3. When ever there is an issue with Emby and I either have to reload my Libraries or reinstall Emby, it is very time consuming to get everything back the way it was. 4. I used to run all the latest beta's but have lately found that if there is a problem with the latest build, it is too time consuming to get my libraries and collections back the way they were. I have over 1500 movies, 153 collections of movies, 97 TV Shows with all Seasons, and over 1500 music albums. After getting everything the way I like it, it would be nice that if something does happen I can restore my libraries and meta data back the way it was. I love using Emby and think this would be a great feature to have, at least for users running the latest beta's.

    A Humble Thank You

    I just wanted to give a huge shoutout to @@ebr for the phenomenal work he did with the Server Configuration Backup plugin. I had to reinstall Windows on my server as I was upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I was unable to do an in place upgrade as I was moving from an Enterprise copy I had from college, to a retail version of Windows 10 pro. The backup plugin worked flawlessly. After I reconfigured my file shares and permissions, Emby was good to go. I just had to wait for a full rescan of my library. Totally impressed. Whole down time including Backup, OS and software install, and library rebuild was about 2 hours. This is a testament to all the hard work you guys did to make the server so stable and well written. Its the little things like this that make your product far superior to your competitors. I'm now off to write a few powershell scripts to help automatically setup my file shares and permissions. That way next time it will be even faster. Thanks, Whitestrat13
  25. I don't know if it has been requested, but at this stage of the game, I think it would be quite important to be able to backup and restore a good portion of the server. My thought is the following should be able to be exported and then imported in the case where a server "restore" is necessary: Users Library Server configuration Watched status/Playstates (you knew it was coming) Installed plugins with configuration for each I would think those would be the most basic and necessary areas that would be the most difficult to get back in the case of disaster. Metadata and images would be nice, but can be re-scraped. I just know that at some point, my server will need to be replaced and while I do keep a full backup of all necessary MB3 directories, an integrated recovery solution would probably be much easier for the majority of users. I know of the backup and restore post here, but I just think it's time for an integrated solution - or even a plugin. I run a daily Windows Server backup job on mine and am confident in restoring it, but I've been in IT for 20 years. General Joe isn't doing that.
