Move qBittorrent from one linux host to another

Post by daehenoc »

Hi,

I want to move my installation of qBittorrent from one Linux computer to another Linux computer. I have found these folders:
~/.cache/qBittorrent
~/.local/share/data/qBittorrent
~/.config/qBittorrent
Are these all the folders and files that I need to preserve the torrent statuses, start time, ratios, etc? The new host will have the torrent and downloaded files in different folders to the source host. I plan on pausing all torrents before doing the move to the new host, copying the above files and folders, installing qBittorrent, replacing the new install files with the above files from the source host, and then running qBittorrent. Set the destination folder, and recheck everything.

Will this work? Thanks!

For the record, copying these directories from one linux host to another, and ensuring that the downloaded files were all in the same directory structure on the target host worked a treat! I have all the data about my torrents on the new host, ratios, date completed, etc!
