Best way to copy entire profile & settings to different machine

Post by zakman »

I'd like to copy my complete Mudlet install to another machine.

Assuming I've already got a fresh install of the client on the new machine, what do I need to copy over for everything to (mostly) seamlessly work when I start it up? Any pitfalls I should be aware of?

you can copy your entire Mudlet profiles directory to the new machine. If coming from window, C:\Users\<username>\.config\mudlet\profiles , linux and macos is $HOME/.config/mudlet/profiles

You might - especially if you are on Windows or MacOS - need to switch your password storage from "secure" to "portable" so that the MUD Server password for each profile (if there is one set) are migrated out of the OS's own secure storage system to the profiles' directories - otherwise that detail won't be transferred...
