On the first computer, backup the database using postgres dump tool:

pg_dump thingsboard --host=localhost --username postgres -W > thingsboard.dump

Then, backup the /etc/thingsboard/conf directory:

sudo tar cvfz tb.tar.gz /etc/thingsboard/conf/*

Copy thingsboard.dump and tb.tar.gz to the new computer. On the new computer, with a fresh install of Thingsboard as per the posted instructions:

Stop Thingsboard, then:

sudo su postgres
dropdb thingsboard    # this removes the database
createdb -T template0 thingsboard
psql thingsboard -U postgres -W < thingsboard.dump

Copy the /etc config files:

cd /
sudo tar xvfz /home/ubuntu/tb.tar.gz

Start Thingsboard.
