if you are running docker and you made the data folder external you can duplicate the data folder and run it in another instance, or, alternatively, you could commit the container and then run a new instance from it. you may need to clear the id of the new container, but otherwise that should be pretty fast.

I, personally, prefer having the data folder external so it doesn’t get saved into the container and also so I can copy it over if I need a second instance.

Thank you. I’ve solved it
