How to migrate from one Pi to another (maybe MagicMirrorOS)
Since few years I’m running a magic mirror on Rpi 3 with a 7’ touch screen and it’s doing exactly what I want.
I recently upgrade the OS to Bullseye and lost the wifi in the process … the best recommendation to fix it is to re-install the Pi … Why not, but I don’t want to lose time on re-configure everything if I could avoid it ( for a time is not the full OS who is broken…)
What would be the advises to backup some files to do a clean migration?
I’m thinking to use MagicMirrorOS as destination … is it a good idea?
@mcnahum MMOS is good for what it does, but a lot of the instructions you will find here and other places won’t work as MM is running inside a docker container… so all the maintenance work will be different
I wrote a little backup/restore
which saves config.js, and custom.css and the links to the modules you have installed
and then restore reads that info and reinstalls modules to a new MM install (previously completed, maybe with the automated install script, see https://github.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts) …
my idea is that you would use git to hold the info from the backup (really small as just 2 files and links)
(so you are not backing up gigabytes for stuff)
and then clone it and restore from there
the commands have help --help will display that
