Subject: BackupTool Plugin
I am in a position where I may need to move my wiki to a new server, and rather than migrate my VM (the base OS is a bit long in the tooth) I was considering backing up and moving the VM that way. I was wondering if anyone had any luck using the BackupTool Plugin.
Thanks in advance.

If this is a linux system you can use rsync with the -a flag to copy from one server to another.  If you are not familiar with rsync, this looks like a good introduction:  https://www.linux.com/learn/how-backup-files-linux-rsync-c….
