There may be times when the Filter Rules need to be migrated from an old server to a new or a backup copy needs to be imported in to a fresh installation. Please see the steps below to migrate the Filter Rules below.
- Stop all GFI Webmonitor Services
- Navigate to ..\Program Files\GFI\Webmonitor\Data
- Rename FilterRules.xml to FilterRules.old
- Place the FilterRules.xml from the old installation in to the new installation
- Start all GFI services
You should now be able to see all of the old Whitelist and Blocklist entries from the previous server or backup file.
