How to carry over a previous install on Linux?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to reinstall resilio sync after doing a fresh install of a new linux distro.  Every time I do so, it's a huge struggle to get resilio to recognize my previous settings. 

I'm currently running Kubuntu 20.10.  I installed resilio sync, and made the changes to the systemd configuration file so that I run it in user more.  I then have to shut down the resilio sync service that was automatically started by the installer. 

I then do

systemctl --user enable resilio-sync.service
systemctl --user start resolio-sync.service

and point my browswer to https://localhost:8888/gui/.  Unfortunately, this will start a new user setup.  I want to just continue using the setup that I had before. 

To that end, I tried copying the  .config/resilio-sync folder from my previous linux installation back to the current installation.  I then restart resilio-sync and my browser (firefox) now complains that


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to localhost:8888. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

So how can migrate a previous installation of resilio sync?
