Ideally you would use the Server Configuration Backup plugin.  

 

But it should be Emby's Programdata folder.

Program data path: /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var

I looked under plugins, but I did not see a backup plugin.  Can you tell me how to go about installing the backup plugin?

 

-Thanks

I think you have to be a supporter to actually use the "Server Configuration Backup" plugin.  Otherwise, just backup the folder H2P mentioned earlier.

I have a lifetime license.  But I don't see the backup plugin.

Please disregard, I found the backup plugin.

Note the plugin only backups up configurations and users and userdata, not databases and metadata.

I found it and scheduled it to run each day at 4 AM.

Is there a way to backup databases and metadata?

Manually via the path shown above.  I don't have this server but assume Emby installed programdata would be self constaned in that location like Windows installs.

On my NAS that directory is about 10 GB in size.  So just to be sure, if my NAS blew up, and I reinstalled Emby on the new NAS, then copied the below directory contents, everything would be restored?  Assuming media is in the same path.

 

> ls /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var

cache  config  data  ESdaemon.lock  esdaemon.pid  logs  metadata  passwordreset.txt  plugins  root  transcoding-temp

with a backup of that directory, yes.

Thanks, that's great news!  I will certainly back it up once I've completed with configuration.
