Moving Monero Blockchain from Whonix-16 to whonix-17

Hey, I’d like to know if its possible to move all files related to monero from whonix-16 to whonix-17 since the EOL.
I’ve used a guide to have a seperate node in form of monerod-ws and monero-wallet-ws for added security.
I’ve tried once to copy the lmdb folder in .bitmonero but the blockchain somehow got corrupted.


What if you just switch the AppVMs template from whonix-16 to whonix-17?

Unfortunately I just found out that using Monero in Whonix 17 with monerod-ws is not possible:

It’s possible but you just need to install the monero in your template from tar.bz2 downloaded from monero website instead of installing the monero debian package.
Or install flatpak.

thanks for the info.I now managed to have the previous things that were done on whonix-16 running on 17.
I think that moving all the files that were downloaded into /usr/bin/ helped it a bit to get the previous tutorial work properly.
