Transfer from Roon Core GUI to "headless" server

gigabit ethenet /. asus router

Description Of Issue

I originally installed the full roon package with the GUI that must be open for the server to run. i want to switch to the “server only” package that can run without the gui active. How can i do this and retain all core settings?


Take a look at the FAQ: How do I move my library over to RoonServer? How do I run headless?.

Hi @dennis_brenner,

In addition to the article that BlackJack shared, check out our general documentation on migration and let us know if this helps. Generally, you’ll want to make a backup, install RoonServer, and then connect to RoonServer and restore the backup.
