This guide helps you to migrate your data from Subsonic to Airsonic. It has been tested with Subsonic 5 to Airsonic 6.
Install Airsonic as described in one of the following install guides:
After installation of Airsonic, the database needs to be migrated. In preperation for that, stop the Airsonic service.
If you ran Subsonic before, your data will be (by default) stored in
/var/subsonic. Assuming you did not use Airsonic before, we will delete all data from Airsonic:
WARNING: Deletes all Airsonic data
sudo rm -R /var/airsonic
We then copy Subsonic data to Airsonic location. Be aware that a couple of files need to be renamed:
sudo cp -a /var/subsonic /var/airsonic sudo mv /var/airsonic/subsonic_sh.log /var/airsonic/airsonic_sh.log sudo mv /var/airsonic/subsonic.log /var/airsonic/airsonic.log sudo mv /var/airsonic/subsonic.properties /var/airsonic/airsonic.properties sudo mv /var/airsonic/db/subsonic.backup /var/airsonic/db/airsonic.backup sudo mv /var/airsonic/db/subsonic.data /var/airsonic/db/airsonic.data sudo mv /var/airsonic/db/subsonic.lck /var/airsonic/db/airsonic.lck sudo mv /var/airsonic/db/subsonic.log /var/airsonic/db/airsonic.log sudo mv /var/airsonic/db/subsonic.properties /var/airsonic/db/airsonic.properties sudo mv /var/airsonic/db/subsonic.script /var/airsonic/db/airsonic.script
/var/airsonic owner to use that will run airsonic (e.g. tomcat8 or airsonic):
sudo chown -R user:user /var/airsonic
Then start Airsonic service again.
Your old settings will still be there. If you wish, you can delete subsonic data:
sudo rm -R /var/subsonic
