Get Old DB

First, you will need to grab a copy of your old database. The file is usually called pwman.db and is stored in the /home/username/.pwman/ directory.

If you can't find it there, take a look at your /home/username/.pwman/config/ file, and it will tell you where the file is.

Copy the db, and move it to a safe location.

Install pwman3 on New Server

Install pwman3 on your new server by following the new installation instructions. You can take a look back at this page, or look at the content below.

Install in Ubuntu/Debian

Using a fairly modern version of Ubuntu/Debian (tested on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS 64bit) you can throw this command in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install pwman3

Run pwman3

Run pwman3 be typing pwman3 at the command line.

I suggest configuring the same master password as you had in the previous version1)

Copy In the New DB

Take your backed up copy of pwman.db and copy it into your new /home/username/.pwman/.

If you want this installed in a different location, you can just update your config file to point to that location.

1) I'm not sure if it is required, but if the items are encrypted based on the password, setting a different password could cause an issue. You can always change it later if you want to update your password.
