  4. Migrating from QuickBox Community Edition (CE) to QuickBox Pro

This documentation is to only serve as a guide for migrating from QuickBox Community Edition to QuickBox Pro. This is not an extensive guide, nor can we guarantee you will not run into any issues. This guide has been created to help those who wish to migrate from the Community Edition over to the Pro version of QuickBox. We will not cover all applications that you can migrate as there are simply too many to cover.

In addition, this guide will not cover any customisation work done within the Community Edition and migrating that. At the time of writing this guide, customising QuickBox Pro is NOT recommended, nor is it supported.

Prerequisites

  1. You must have a QuickBox Pro Licence. You can purchase one here
  2. You must backup your configurations of your applications. You can find your configuration files in /home/username/.config
  3. Your content will NOT be transferred over to QuickBox Pro. QuickBox Pro requires you to have a fresh installation. We recommend backing up your content to another device/hard drive, or using Google Drive to backup your data.

Installing QuickBox Pro

The first job is to install QuickBox Pro. You can follow our fantastic guide here: https://quickbox.io/knowledge-base/standard-install/

Moving your Configurations

In all of these steps, we recommend using the QuickBox Dashboard and an FTP connection. To learn how to FTP into your server, check out this guide here.

  1. FTP into your server and copy your configuration files that you backed up into a new folder. We recommend using /home/username/Community replacing username with your QuickBox Pro server username.
  2. Then install NoVNC or X2GO – We recommend using NoVNC for ease of use.
  3. Then install all of the applications you wish to install. For further help and instructions, check out the Applications area of our Knowledge Base center here: https://quickbox.io/kb-categories/applications/
  4. Then in your QuickBox Pro Dashboard disable all of the applications.
  5. Now copy your configurations folder from /home/username/Community into /home/username/.config replacing username with your QuickBox Pro server username.
  6. Now one by one, enable each application and test it.

Updating Sonarr/Radarr

When you copy over the configuration files for Sonarr or Radarr, out of the box they will not work. We need to make some slight modifications in order for them to work.

  1. Using your VNC program of choice open up Firefox
  2. Then type in this address;

Sonarrlocalhost:8989

Radarr localhost:7979

3. Then go to Settings > General and ensure “Show Advanced” is turned on.

4. Change the Bind Address to just * we no longer need the full IP Address

5. Then update the Port Number to the same one as shown on your QuickBox dashboard.

6. Finally update the URL Base and change it to /username/sonarr replacing username with your QuickBox Pro server username. If you are using Radarr then please update that to /username/radarr

Now go back to your QuickBox Pro Dashboard and click the Refresh button for Sonarr/Radarr and then check it. You should now see Sonarr/Radarr updated with all of your relevant settings and content added.

Migrating Deluge

You can migrate Plugins and Settings from your CE version of Deluge easily.

To move your plugins, you will need to copy over the .egg files from /home/username/Community/.config/Deluge/plugins into your new Deluge config folder which is now located /home/username/.config/Deluge/plugins

You can also copy over your settings which are all contained in /home/username/.config/Deluge/however you will need to manually the files to update the Daemon and Web UI Port however, this is not recommended but achievable. We recommend updating any other applications with the new port for Deluge as that is easier and quicker.

ruTorrent

For ruTorrent, we recommend not transferring any configuration from ruTorrent over to QuickBox Pro as you will need to update the ports within the configuration file directly. Whilst this is not impossible, we recommend updating the ports and settings within your applications directly as it is easier and quicker.
