On prem migration to Centos 8 form 7, whats the correct proccess?

Hello,
anyone have any info or proper documentation for migration of bitwarden on premise over to new Centos 8 server from centos7, server are the same Ip’s I’ve tried a few times by installing a fresh install of bitwarden then copying over the bwdata folder and restarting BW with no success, any input would be great!

I’ve also tried the new install with the same installation ID and key as well.

I’ve narrowed down the issue to the following,

bb1e2b9370c8 bitwarden/mssql:1.35.1 “/entrypoint.sh” 14 minutes ago Restarting (1) 2 seconds ago

look like the container is restarting every minute, not sure why?

I’ve solved the issues,

mssql needs more than 2gb ram to start, any less and you’ll run into the issue with mssql restarting all the time. Gave centos8 4gb, all good now.

Anyone looking to migrate their BW. simply install bitwarden on new server, start it up then stop it. copy the entire bwdata folder over and start up BW again. Works for me. hope this helps someone in the future.
