    Can someone advise please.
    I need to move my dropcatching script to another server. What file do I need to move for my pgp key to work? I use gnupg but set it all up years ago. is it the secring.gpg ?

    thanks

    It's actually easier and less confusing to delete the existing one, generate a new one and upload it to Nominet.

    Thanks but the problem is I have the keys on about 3 or 4 machines over 3 locations so trying to avoid that.

    Not sure is there is a simple file, but you can quite simply export keys and import them into the new system (quite a while since I did it though so best to take a look at the documentation)

    I don't think a straight directory copy will work, because GnuPG writes to the registry.

    you can export all keys with gpg to ascii armoured file and then import it wherever you need... read the command line options.
