Hi Everyone i’m thinking about migrating my OH from a WIN machine to something like a RPI (I have never used a Rasberry so could be a problem) how hard would this be? Or would i need to start completely from scratch? is there anything i could do to make the migration easier if i do decide to migrate in the future?
My OH is running on a windows 10 machine i setup all my things,items,bindings using paper UI
My Rules are text
I would also like to keep my habpannel i have been working on
I’ll recommend using openHABian to install OH and related servers on the RPi.
Then use the backup script (in the bin folder I think) to create a backup of your config. This will get the contents of your conf folder and parts of your userdata folder.
There is a restore script as well which will take your backup file and put everything back where they go.
@Benjy, is there anything special one has to watch out for when going from Windows to Linux? Does the backup grab HABPanel configs?
thanks for that
Yes I remember you telling me about this when I was saying about saving a last known good Config
It should do yeah, although I’ve never had the chance to test from Windows to Linux yet. Would be great to hear the results!
Yes I think it did its been awhile since I migrated from windows either way
Install openhabian on the pi and just copy your main config files over there may be a few additional things you need too do like reinstall bindings and config but your rules and item files will move straight over
