in the near future i have to migrate all data and settings from an old ownCloud 7.0.5 Server to a new Seafile Server.
The old Owncloud data folder is 80 GB big and has 461 user account folders.
I have no idea how to migrate all this data to the new seafile server.
Do you guys have any ideas or are there any migration tools for this out there ?
Thank you in advance!
please refer to this post
Thanks a lot.
But im an absolut newbie in Seafile and Cloud Migration
So how do i install and use the seafile CLI to migrate the data ?
Thanks for the link.
But i’ve looked at the site and couldnt find a command for the migration.
Could someone give me an example how to do this with the CLI ?
I don’t think Seaf-cli is the good solution
I would use seaf-import directly on the server
export list of users (emails)
export data of each users in a folder “email” named
SFTP to local file system (all directories named by email)
SHELL script to use seaf-import for all users
seaf-import.sh -p <import dir path, must set> -n <repo name, must set> -u <repo owner, must set>
Should be easy and reliable
Any advice from the community ?
I will have a closer look at this and gladly accept further advices.
As mentioned i am absolut new in the seafile and migration topic
So i’ve tested a bit and got the following results:
If i use seaf-import i got the following error:
I also installed the seaf-cli but i dont understand how to use the cli to import the data to seafile.
Could you or someone give me an example ?
I’ve never seen such an error on seaf-import.
You might have missed or mistyped something
Try first with one folder for one user
if Ok, script it for all users.
Seaf-import is the best way to achieve your goal.
