I’m seeking information on the migration of a Tor relay when both the machine and the public IP address need to be changed. I’ve followed the official Tor Project guide for relay operators (I want to upgrade/move my relay. How do I keep the same identity? | Tor Project | Support), which provides detailed instructions on migrating a relay when only the machine is changed.
However, in my case, in addition to changing the machine, I also need to change the public IP address. Apart from saving the keys and all the contents of the DataDirectory as outlined in the guide, I’m wondering if there’s anything else to consider when changing the public IP address as well.
I would appreciate it if anyone could share additional information or personal experiences regarding this specific situation. I want to ensure I’m following best practices and ensuring a smooth transition for my Tor relay.
Thank you in advance for your support and for sharing your knowledge.
