Backup settings

 

To create a backup of your existing configuration use command Backup Settings, this can be found in the System menu. 

 

Once created this file can be used to restore settings on this installation or duplicate your configuration on another machine. 

 

Tip: You can also use the configuration file (nzbget.conf) instead of the backup file. You will need to use this method if you are unable to access the web-interface of NZBGet. This file is normally called nzbget.conf but any other file can be used if passed to NZBGet on start.

 

Restore settings

 

Use the command Restore Settings to restore all or some of the configuration settings, this can also be found in the System menu. You are able to individually select options to restore while allowing other settings to remain unchanged. 

 

Restore settings on another machine

 

When performing a restore on a different machine than the original installation, be sure to not restore settings that contain local paths. These setting sections may include:

  1. all options in section Paths;

  2. option DestDir in section Categories (per category destination path);

  3. options UnrarCmd and SevenZipCmd in section Unpack.

Recommended procedure:

To perform a restoration on a second machine we suggest the following steps. 

  1. Write down current values of options UnrarCmd and SevenZipCmd in section Unpack.

  2. Click Restore Settings, check all sections except Paths and do restore.

  3. Revert options UnrarCmd and SevenZipCmd in section Unpack.

  4. Review destination paths in section Categories.

  5. Save your configuration.
