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.
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.
It seems that your site does not has a sql database. If there one, then you would do other things. Like installing a bash shell on your windows, to restore the database, first of all you need to transfer from windows machine to the linux machine the backup files. The bash shell must support a secure copy and remote login commands. I think it sounds troublesome for someone who never worked with databases and don’t understand how they work. Before restoring just move the backup files in a subdirectory of mysql. By the way if it happens that you don’t have enough storage for your projects, you can use cheap storage vps, there a many option.
