Migrate Diaspora install from AWS to our VPS

Keywords: Ruby - AWS - How to - Other
Description:
Firstly I selected Ruby because Diaspora was not an available option when submitting ticket.

We installed the bitnami image to the AWS cloud as a test but now want to migrate off AWS as they started charging us straight away despite being on the free tier. It was always our intention to migrate anyway as we are wary of Big Tech.

How do we backup or migrate from AWS cloud to a cPanel VPS running centos?

Thanks

Don

Hi @don4,

You can backup all the installation files and copy them in the same directory of the new machine

https://docs.bitnami.com/aws/apps/discourse/administration/backup-restore/

Note: you will probably need to do the same with the /bitnami folder

You can also deploy the different components manually and only migrate the app’s data to that new installation

Happy to help!
