Chatty SMS Backup/Restore
#1
I've come across a couple threads that point out that Chatty stores its SMS records in.

Code:
~/.purple/chatty/db/chatty-history.db


I've also seen that there are folders for each message in

Code:
~/.purple/chatty/logs/mm-sms/sms



I'm trying to migrate my messages from one installation to another, and after moving the database file and the contents of the log files, I still don't see the message appear when I open up chatty.

Has anyone exported/imported their messages from one installation to another? I must be missing something simple here.

Solved, I just copied the entire .purple folder. Should have tried that yesterday, I must have been tired.
