Just to let anyone else know, I ran into the same issue with 7.2.0 when migrating servers and made the change that @girish mentioned and it still didn't work until I restarted docker (systemctl restart docker) and then it worked!
@girish it does, yes. They also have a KVM style one for their "elastic metal" service. I'll give this a try and report back. My main question is whether I can install the OS from an image or if I have to use one of theirs. Otherwise, I may have to find another host 🙂
Note to self: Use an external drive that has twice the disk space needed by the apps as a temporary mount point to restore to! Because it will need to download a copy of the whole backup, then unpack and finally bin the download. D'oh!
Step 1: Find a disk with sufficient space to restore to (apps space x 2)
Step 2: Mount the disk and symlink to the original location in the backup file
Step 3: Restore and then reset the storage location (or point it to where ever your new mount point is).
Got it all working now. Perhaps it's time to invest in a bigger SSD for my home server 🙂
@girish I don’t think I’ve tampered with anything there, no.
Very good, as long as there’s some mechanism to reliably start over I’m happy to do that. Thanks! In the longer term maybe some kind of ”Start over” mechanism doing this same thing can be exposed to the backup page…
Just my 2 cents here : like girish said, if you want to run other things besides cloudron, you should install cloudron in a VM.
If you really want to dedicate the whole machine to cloudron, there is really no need to bother with the additional layer of complexity, another OS to keep up to date and such. I would go bare-metal in this case. That's how I've been running cloudron for 2 years, and it's great.
