Backup and Restore User Accounts

Hello Community,

I have a fresh install JMS and would like to restore user accounts from old server. Is it possible and how can we do that?


Accounts are created in Prosody. You might want to check in a Prosody forum (too), just in case someone doesn’t offer a solution here.

Accounts are simple text files, you can find them in /var/lib/prosody and there should be folders with the virtualhosts names, transfer the files/folders and make sure you make the file and folder permissions to be correct and you can start using them without restarting prosody, I think.

Thanks Freddie and Damencho. Let me try as what you suggested and will feedback the result.

It works. I copied files from old server to the new one and users are able to login without any issue.

Thanks for great your great help.
