Restoring Immich database and settings from a backup pool/snapshot (cannot use "migrate apps") [Scale]


Mar 10, 2024
I recently lost a pool but I have an offline backup that was replicated from the original pool including ix-applications.

Now I'm trying to restore this backup. All the shares were easily restored and manually configured again. The problem are the apps.
The only app I had was immich, but I can't use "migrate apps" since the backup pool was created by replication rather than "migrate apps" option.

So far I have tried installing immich in the new pool and then replicating the folders with immich data (pics and videos), but I am missing the settings (users, admin, database, settings...).

I assume I may have to manually copy some PostgreSQL folders to the new pool. Would that work and which folders should I copy?
