Update to newest version

(1/2) > >>

I was hoping someone might be able to inform me as to the easiest way to update to the latest version of Cumulus MX. I'm running an older version, 3.4.1 b3065 on a Raspberry pi that I'm still intimidated by. :?

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Over on the Cumulus forums is a thread about setting up Cumulus as a service on the Pi. Doing so makes it easier to start, stop, restart, and check the status of the program. There is also instructions on how to update Cumulus to the latest version (post number 3 or 4 iirc). The thread has step by step instructions for the commands to enter and is pretty easy to follow. Since you already have the Pi running it shouldn't be a problem to do.

If you do run into problems it would probably be best to ask over on those forums since that is the official support for Cumulus.

I'll give that a look, thanks.

Plus there is a Raspberry Pi image that you can install.

You'd then just have to copy in your configuration file and /data /reports folders from your existing install.

This is preconfigured with the pre-reqs, and Cumulus is installed as as service that starts on system boot.

Thanks Mark. I tried the method in the above link that alaskazimm posted, I'm pretty sure you also contributed to as well. It's a simple method to stop Rpi, drop the updated version in the CMX file and reboot. Unfortunately it didn't seem to work so maybe I'll try your link.
