I agree, do not forget to copy digicamrc-file. Ref this blogpost: https://pixls.us/blog/2019/07/quick-digikam-tip-back-up-digikamrc-file/ <https://pixls.us/blog/2019/07/quick-digikam-tip-back-up-digikamrc-file/> 
Secondly, see this thread (from this mailing list), although you are not migrating between windows and mac, I think it is generally useful. https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/digikam-users/2022-May/033640.html <https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/digikam-users/2022-May/033640.html> 

Best regards

By this you can manage to move all dk an foto file  to any path, and start with previous resulst existent. (-->"portable")
