Lost my database because i have change the source
#1
Hello

I lost all the data from my video library, which it took me two years to make. The data is still in Kodi, but I don't know how to change the source.

Actually, I switched servers.

Old source : smb://FREEBOX_SERVER
New source: smb://FREEBOX

Does anyone know if it's possible to modify the database so that I don't have to redo my entire database?

Thank you

You can export your old db, manually edit paths; Then import back. I believe this method should work, though it's untested by me.

If you have some SQL knowledge, you can always 'hack' your database and change path sources.
Make sure to make a copy/backup of your current database.

Are you using the local SQLite database or a MySQL/MariaDB database?

I was able to rename my old path, so I got my database back.

This time, I made a backup of my media library lol...

And I made a script that updates it every week to avoid that problem.
