  3. Copy your config settings from your backup to the new config You should not copy the whole files - just the individual settings

Do not copy the whole config files - you must copy the individual settings from one another.

5️⃣ Ensure new dependencies are added

Run these commands in PowerShell/a terminal.

  • cd <file path to bot>
    npm install

IF THIS DOESN'T WORK, THEN: Follow our setup guides for Windows and Linux to ensure all dependencies are correctly installed for your operating system. Thanks for sticking with Zeltux! Have a great day!
