I've been using a Nextcloud Webdav server running on a DigitalOcean droplet for 2 weeks and I'm unhappy with the performance since my devices(mobile, PC, Macbook) Joplin apps are never in sync. I think the problem might be the sync server being too slow.
I'd like to move to a Webdav server hosted someplace else, but I want to make sure that I migrate my data the right way. Is there a standard procedure support article or Wiki page detailing how to safely move my data from one Webdav server to another?
I didn't find instructions by searching these forums or in a general Web search, but hopefully it's documented somewhere.
I'm expecting something like ( but this is a guess )
- Disable sync in Joplin app with the "master copy" of your notes.
- Export notes to .jex file in a safe location.
- Change Webdav sync URL in settings and click on "check sync configuration" button to verify it works.
- Apply settings.
- Repeat for all of your devices.
Thanks in advance.
Joplin information for my Macbook:
Joplin 1.5.14 (prod, darwin)
Client ID: c709f2fd7ab34c5db0bc4cbdf398e89a
Sync Version: 2
Profile Version: 34
Keychain Supported: Yes
Revision: 9e076bf (master)
Nextcloud version is 20.0.4.
Update: I tried pointing Joplin mac and iOS apps to the new server. They both want to delete all of their notes instead of populating the server with their locally stored notes. i
Is there a way to change the behavior so that instead of deleting local notes because the sync server is empty, they keep local notes and add them to the sync server?
