Migrating Emby metadata to another computer

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.

I tried doing it. The dashboard loads up and I can see the library folders. But, no content actually shows up.

I zipped the folder which points to /config in docker which has the data, config, cache, and other folders. Then, I moved it to the new server placed it in the appropriate directory, built the docker with the exact same settings as the previous container.

Ok it's tough to say. I don't think I've tested that before. You may need to run a library scan.

Okay, and if I just wanted to duplicate the metadata i.e. set it up as a new user, how would I do that?

I don't quite follow. Metadata and users are two separate things.

 

I would just follow the backup guide we have already created. Thanks.
