You should only import a profile into LYNQ when the source and destination instances are on the same version number.

Save a copy of your profile before making any significant changes to advanced settings.

Config Database
An exported profile is a textual representation of the configuration tables in XML format.

Factory Defaults
LYNQ is shipped with a default profile and loaded during installation.  Do not delete this profile as it can be used to reset to factory settings.

Reset Profile
Do not reset your profile unless you really want to wipe all of your settings.

Most of the settings configured in LYNQ are stored in the configuration database.  These settings can be saved as a profile and exported to file.  This is a really useful feature if you want an easy way to transfer configuration settings to another instance of LYNQ.

For data integrity purposes, unfortunately not everything can be stored and exported in the profile.  Nearly all of the settings found in advanced settings are exported.  However, refer to the table below to understand what’s not included in a profile export.
