    I was having trouble migrating my Publii files from my Pop!_OS machine to my Mac but found this thread. I zipped the directory, unzipped on my Mac and all was fine.

    Now, I need to move my Publii files back to my Pop!_OS machine. Using the same method continues to deliver the same error message:

    Am I missing something? I only used Publii on my Mac for a week while my System76 machine was getting repaired. They’re (essentially) the same files.

    Thanks.

    Do you have the same username on the new computer? The error is caused by fact that Publii cannot find a directory listed in the error message.

    Yes, the username is the same on both computers. However, the path is different on Linux:

    /home/gadgetboy/Documents/Publii/sites

    vs Mac OS:

    /Users/gadgetboy/Documents/Publii/sites

    It looks like I can edit that in:

    /config/app-config.json

    …and that worked.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I expected the path to be relative to the user directory.
