When migrating a node, can i use rsync with the --size-only flag

Do we have files of the same name and size where the content changes? Or can i skip the checksumming and just let rsync chose which files to update based upon their size?

I’m almost certain you can use that flag, though I would make sure to copy the databases the last time without that flag, with the node stopped. The pieces themselves shouldn’t change.

The database shouldn’t be the same size either i wouldn’t think, but agreed its worth the extra step.

Thanks bs.

Usually no, most are only written to and not updated. But it’s worth the extra precaution as it could in theory happen.
