Restore workflows on docker image


running n8n on digital ocean linux server with Docker.

Since my current n8n docker installation seems not to work anymore after update from 1.25.1 to 1.32.2 I would like to do a fresh install.

Is there a way I can migrate the workflows from my old docker image?

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

hello @Sebastian1

What is not working? There might be only one issue with not setting the HTTPS for your site.
You can export all credentials and workflows to file and import them later.

Hey barn4k, thank you for beeing with me :slight_smile:

I did an update and from then on I could not access the new version through the domain name anymore and I wonder how this could happen to find out how to fix it.

In the meanwhile I did setup a new server and now try to import the credentials and workflows and how they will work well since the users they have been runned with would have a different User ID I guess

So any advice on this would be helpful.

I recommend setting up a backup workflow like this one:

It runs periodically and saves your workflows in .json files that you can copy & paste in any n8n instance.

Backing up the credentials is a different challenge, though.
