How to backup server and restore


Recommended Posts


I just install and use emby from last week. I install the server on win10

I used it mostly on PC and apple tv app. Suddenly, I found it cannot find the existing server on apple tv.

I try to use it on firefox of PC. It shows "http://localhost:8096"cannot be connect.

I restart the server from taskbar icon many times. It still cannot work, even restart the PC.

I cannot find the emby server icon on start menu, even after couple times of PC restart.


Eventually, I re-install the emby server, and found that all metadata of the past week work (over hundred hours) has been vanished.

Since I has data bank for over 4 thousand movies, I work hard to find the in-recognize and mismatch movies data, and matched manually inside emby before.


After re-install server and setup those media library, it can only recognize the picture, not the right name of the movie.


I afraid that will happen again. I try emby also according to the server lost of other emby competitor, which has been used for many years.


Can you teach me how can I backup the server and restore those manually matched movie data? to avoid another disaster happen again, even change PC? Thank you

Some is off on the PC for that to happen.  Run a check disk to make sure there isn't something needing to be corrected.


Are you running the installed version or portable version?
