I have a question about my tor relay.

I have been some months using it and now I want to change the server I use to host it, but I don't want to start again by 0, I want to maintain the relay I have.

How can I do it?

I want to do this because now I have a high traffic

you must migrate your whole DataDirectory - the one you've specified in your torrc. after that you're pointing your new-hosted Tor to the same directory and config - and that's it! You can change a filesystem path of the dir, of course - just don't forget to reflect it in your torrc before running tor.

  • Just by copying this into the new server its ok. ORPort 9001 Nickname MyServer ContactInfo relay@sigaint.org (Ask for PGP) ExitPolicy reject : Mar 24, 2016 at 14:15
