Updating live installation?


Chris Wilson
 

04 January 2022


Newbie question, I havve been running the wsprdaemon for a long time but never updatd it, can I update a running, live installation remotely please? If so are there some idiot proof instructions anywhere please? I can log in the the pi OK remotely.

Thanks and as healthy and happy a New Year as the situation allows :)

Here is how I would upgrade a v 2.x installation to v2.10k, ssh to the server, then:

cd ~/wsprdaemon/
./wsprdaemon.sh -z
git pull
./wsprdaemon.sh -a

Rob,

How to I check the cache? My system hasn't uploaded spots since 1308Z this morning.

Hello Rob,

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

OK, many thanks for the instructions, one thing though, how do I tell if the version I am running is a V2.* one, remotely please Rob?

Did you ever manage to put an option in for no own call decodes?

Thanks for the great software and all the best from England.

./wsprdaemon.sh -V   (that is a capital 'V') will display the version number.

I'll put a 'no same call' option in WD V3.0, but I think it is useful so I won't make it the default.
wspnet.org drops such calls, but the wsprdaemon extend spots database keeps them.

Hi Chris,

No apologies are needed.  Your installation must not have been from executing 'git clone ....', so your ~/wsprdaemon directory has no 'git' information in it.
Here is how I would install v2.10k while preserving the existing config file:

cd ~/wsprdaemon/
./wsprdaemon.sh -z
cd ~
mv  ~/wsprdaemon ~/wsprdaemon.save
cp ~/wsprdaemon.save/wsprdaemon.conf  ~/wsprdaemon/wsprdaemon.conf  
cd ~/wsprdaemon/
./wsprdaemon.sh -a

Rob
