Transferring a Mumble-Server installation between servers

Quick and simple guide on moving your Mumble server database and configuration file.

This guide is for Ubuntu 12.04 and later.

  1. cd /etc
  2. cp mumble-server.ini ~/.
  3. ps aux | grep murmur Note the process ID.
  4. kill PID_OF_MURMUR_SERVER
  5. cp /var/lib/mumble-server/mumble-server.sqlite ~/.
  6. cd
  7. zip mumble-server.zip mumble-server.ini mumble-server.sqlite

Download the mumble-server.zip from your /root directory and re-upload to your new host.

Once on your new host, install Mumble server as usual, then restore the files we copied to their respectful places on the new host. Be sure you stop Murmur on your new host before replacing these files.

  1. cd
  2. unzip mumble-server.zip
  3. mv -f mumble-server.ini /etc/.
  4. add-apt-repository ppa:mumble/release; apt-get update Add the up-to-date repo.
  5. apt-get install mumble-server Install the mumble-server package.
  6. mv -f mumble-server.sqlite /var/lib/mumble-server/.
  7. dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server Configure/start the server.

This guide was tested with a Digital Ocean server. For $5/month, you can run a 5-slot Minecraft server + Mumble with their lowest tier! If you're in the market for a new server, consider using this link
