    I’m migrating from Windows 10 to Debian, and wonder how I would restore my site’s backups in Linux since the default “sites location” in Publii’s “App Settings” in Windows points to “C:\Users\username\Documents\Publii\sites” which is a different directory/filepath than in Linux.




    Unzip the backup file on your new machine, and move the YOUR_NAME_SITE folder to the new location on the Linux machine /home/USERNAME/Documents/Publii/sites/

    I think it should work.

    Thanks Bob! This worked flawlessly.

    Made a new site with exactly the same name, closed Publii. Then extracted my backups from my Windows machine and took the three folders in that site (input, output, preview) and moved them into the ‘Home/Documents/Publii/sites/site-name’ folder.

    Opened Publii, and there was everything there.
