Migrate cryoSPARC to another machine?

Hi all,

is it possible to migrate the master from one computer to somewhere else? We now have a dedicated machine that we want to set up to be the master for cryosparc. However as we have already quite a few projects for the current master I was wondering whether I could migrate the installation somehow.





Backup and Restore functions are detailed here.

I’d recommend not deleting your original instance of cryoSPARC until you’re certain the new installation works.

Dear Stephan,

I get this error when I try to do the backup: /home/cryosparc/cryosparc2_master/bin/cryosparcm: line 497: mongodump: command not found

Is there a remedy for that? It happens when I tried on three separate installation of CryoSPARC I have. Thanks.

Hi @tanyongzi,

Did you update your cryoSPARC installation to v2.3 before running this command? If you did, can you check the path


If it exists, please add it to your PATH env. variable by executing:
echo "export PATH=${PATH_TO_MONGODUMP}:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc

For example:
echo "export PATH=$/home/cryosparc_user/cryosparc2_master/deps/external/mongodb/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
