I have a Bitcoin core server (Server 1) which is working well. Now I am testing backing up and restoring its wallet on a new server (Server 2). Imagine that the server 1 has these configs:
datadir=/btc/data # wallet.dat file is here in the wallets directory
Now, I want to move the backup file (wallet.dat) to the new server which its default paths are like this:
- Do I need to have the same paths in the server 2 for data and block directory as the server 1? Or can I move the backup file to the default path of wallet.dat in server 2?
- Should I copy the download blockchain from the server 1 and move them to server 2 too?
