Move Node Red to a new installation

Hi, I would like to move my existing node red application to a newly deployed bullseye debian version (previously strech). Node Red is running as is and I have also imported the flows.
What do I have to do now to reinstall the "old" palettes?

best regards


To move everything to a new system, copy the complete .node-red folder to the new system, except for the node_modules folder. Then cd into the .node-red folder and run
npm install
which will install all the extra nodes. Then restart node-red.

Vielen Dank fĂĽr die schnelle Hilfe :grinning:

Fortunately, I finally got NodeRed running on the new installation.
But now I get error messages when updating the palettes: see the attached log file.
What do I have to do?

Sorry, but I'm an absolute "Newbi"... :slight_smile:

That appears to be a problem with node-red-contrib-ui-led-fork, which says it needs an old version of the dashboard. Why are you using the fork?

I try to update node-red-contrib-ui-led-fork but it dose not work

THX!! - With this hint, I solved this issue!

  • del. all notes with node-red-contrib-ui-led
  • uninstall node-red-contrib-ui-led
  • reinstall node-red-contrib-ui-led


Do you mean you uninstalled node-red-contrib-ui-led-fork and installed node-red-contrib-ui-led?

Yes, that is exactly what I did
