is it possible to recover project with only acces to dataiku_dir?

Here's the issue, 

We had a virtual machine that runs dataiku in a docker container, 

however we had some issue with that virtual machine and we lost that acces, 

now we have mounted the /data drive to another virtual machine. 

I do recovered my postgres data with pgdata folder but is it possible with dataiku? 

now the only obvious thing i can found in relationship with dataiku is this folder, 

is it possible to recover an valide dss with those and get an .zip export of projects?

ubuntu@$ cd dataiku_dir/
ubuntu@$ ls
R.lib code-envs databases html-apps instance-id.txt local plugins saved_models
analysis-data config diagnosis imported_data jobs managed_datasets privtmp timelines
bin data-catalog dss-version.json install-support jupyter-run managed_folders pyenv tmp
caches exports install.ini lib notebook_results run uploads

Hi,

If you have the full contents of the data directory you could try to follow this guide.

https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/operations/backups.html#restore-on-another-machine-another-locati...

  1. Install a dss again( version must be the same or newer).
  2. Sync the contents of the saved dataiku_dir to the new location.
  3. Re-run the dss installer with -u

If you only need to export projects once starting dss you can also just use the CLI the https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/operations/backups.html#restore-on-another-machine-another-locati...

If you need to fully use please make sure to re-run any integration scripts and rebuild code environments.
