<div dir="ltr">I am replacing my Ubuntu 16.04 setup with a clean install of Myth on a clean install of Utuntu 20.04. I have the old mythconverg backed up and am getting ready to restore. The wiki <a href="https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Backend_migration">backend migration page</a> says "Depending on how your distribution initialises the database upon
installation of the backend, you may need to use the procedure for <a href="https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_Backup_and_Restore#Replacing_an_existing_database" title="Database Backup and Restore" style="font-size:14px;line-height:22.4px">replacing the database by the backup</a>."<div><br></div><div>The referenced page says: "
If you are replacing an existing database with a known-good backup by
using a full restore--for example, because your database has been
corrupted or a database schema upgrade failed or you're replacing a
package-provided database with your "old" database after re-installing
your distro--you will need to drop the existing database. "</div><div><br></div><div>I don't know how 20.04 initializes the DB. I am not replacing the DB because of corruption or failed upgrade. Do I run <a href="http://mythconverg_restore.pl">mythconverg_restore.pl</a> with defaults or include the drop and create arguments? Also to be clear, I should restore the DB after installing myth but before running setup, right? </div></div>
