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

Hi, as you've noticed, this isn't what we suggest but yes you could try it.

Luke, thanks for your answer. Just hoping that you don't mean "Bazinga!" when you answer questions ...  :rolleyes:

 

I'll try, and I also hope the downgrade as disussed here does not get in the way.
