Backup / Restore to new system

Hello @all,

ich want to move Grafana to another VM on my proxmox server which hast then only a stand alone installtion (debian buster) of grafana!

How can i migrate with all my dashboards, databases, ini files, users etc. to this new installtion VM.

I looked to the documentation but i do not find anything about the above mentioned backup and restore.

What is the correct way ?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @seqway - The upgrade documentation includes recommendations for backing up your database which would be the same steps you’d want to take before migrating: https://grafana.com/docs/grafana/latest/installation/upgrading/#backup

This user posted a recommended step-by-step on migrations for self-hosters:

Maybe it would be a good idea to use a mariadb to store the configuration, dashboards … instead of a local grafana.db file. You can use a db on a separate host and connect to it from any other host or container with grafana installed.
