Migrate from Airtime

This guide walk you though the steps required to migrate your data from Airtime to LibreTime.


Airtime linked files and watched folders features are either deprecated or not working in LibreTime.

LibreTime dropped support for Ubuntu 16.04, which is the last supported version of Ubuntu that Airtime supports.

Make a backup

Follow the backup guide to make a backup of your current Airtime installation.


Install LibreTime on a new system by following the install guide, and don't run the setup wizard.

Restore the backup

Restore the Airtime backup on the newly installed LibreTime server.

You have to restore the database, the files storage and the configuration files.

Update the configuration files

Update the configuration file to match the new configuration schema and update any changed values. See the configuration documentation for more details.

Edit the Icecast password in /etc/icecast2/icecast.xml to reflect the password used in Airtime.


Restart the LibreTime services and navigate to the LibreTime web-page.
