Migration/Upgrade: Transfer Users from "Local Database"



  • Hi all,

    i tried to find a solution on google but the situation is always a bit different.

    I did a fresh pfsense installation on new hardware. I created a fresh configruation and did some tests - everything looks fine.

    Now the challange: I want to export/import migrate the local database with the user information (username, passwort, groups etc.) to the new system but i don't find the right approach. How can i export the database?

    Thx and KR

    There isn't an easy or automatic way to do that. You'll have to make a backup of the new configuration and then use a text editor to replace the user and group sections with those from the old configuration.
