[Instiki] backing it all up

Thanks VERY much. I'll be happy to document this at Instiki.org (where,
last I looked, it is not documented), and pass it on to TextDrive and ask
that it gets included in their knowledge base. This is so delightfully
simple, and thus congruent with much of the rest of Instiki (although I
suppose this simplicity is actually due to how Rails works, in truth).
I'm still just a bit confused about something, however. In my Instiki
instance, I have a parent wiki, which has spawned a number of child wikis,
so to speak. Looking at the directory structure on the server, what I see
is just ONE sqlite3 db file (well, of course - not need for more, yes?).
That contains ALL the wikis, yes? And, just to be very very clear, ftping
that file to my Windows desktop, from the (I think) BSD OS at TestDrive,
can that db file be dropped into a fresh Windows install of Instiki, or
must it go back only to an Instiki running under the same OSas that from
which it came?
Sorry to be so ignorant, but I haven't had time to learn everything yet -
still working on it!
Thanks for any help you can offer.
