Sorry but I can't find this anywhere.
I want to rebuild the machine running Slimserver - how do I back up its configuration so I can install the new OS after formatting the HDD, and recreate the old config?

Thanks!

This depends on your operating system... Windows XP? In the installation folder, slimserver.pref. Vista? c:\application data or something. Linux? /etc/slimserver.pref or /etc/slimserver/

I tried copying the .pref file to back it up (I'm running Win XP Home SP2)

I did a fresh install of SS, stopped it, copied the .pref file over the one in the directory, restarted SS but my old settings didn't reappear.

Did I do something wrong? Not that important now as I put my settings back in manually, but curious for future reference?

Shut down SlimServer _before_ you put the prefs file in its place.
