I've managed to really borc my main system so I am thinking that I would just do a reinstall. So I would redo the root partition and in the past I also did the var area as well.

Where are the files for LedgerSMB stored?

The files for LedgerSMB are usually in /usr/local/ledgersmb/ but can be installed anywhere else.

If PostgreSQL is up and running you should try to take a logical backup before you do anything.  You can do this by:

sudo postgres pg_dumpall > /tmp/mypgbackup.sql
cp /tmp/mypgbackup /home/myuser/

Then it should be relatively safe as long as you store the backup.

Database recovery can be a tricky thing from just files.  Having a logical backup is really nice if things go haywire. 

The data is in postgreSQL which is usually in /var/lib/pgsql or /var/lib/postgresql

How have you managed to mess up your system?  We can probably provide some general ideas on backing up and recovering your data. 

I was thinking of copying important files to my /home partition then I can re-install and would be only using the / and /var partitions.

There are three different files listed above. If I copy those (or which of those I have) is that all I need?

Thanking those helping!!!!!!!!!!!

 (var or ?)

As I had just finished setting up a chart of accounts (added about 75 (or more) other GIFI codes) I would really not want to have to do all this again.

I think I have a chart of accounts set up for a non-corporate farm as required for all the taxes (in Canada) - - - so if it can be explained as to how to just extract just the chart of accounts I would be willing to trade this for present and ongoing help (cheeky grin!!).


Subversion Kills Productivity. Get off Subversion & Make the Move to Perforce.
With Perforce, you get hassle-free workflows. Merge that actually works.
Faster operations. Version large binaries.  Built-in WAN optimization and the
freedom to use Git, Perforce or both. Make the move to Perforce.
