Upgrading to 123Solar 1.6.9.1

Post by andreifus » Sat Dec 10, 2016 11:16 pm

Hi to all,

I apologize for my question, but I'm experiencing some problems with update to 1.6.9.1....

At first, I tried to update to the last version from admin panel. clicking on the update button, and "You are running 123Solar 1.6.8.3, 123Solar 1.6.9.1 is available" was displayed.
Then, I created the directory /var/www/_NEW/ as requested, and I downloaded into the tar.gz file
Finally I exctrated the archive and automatically, a sub dir /123Solar was created under /_NEW/ folder.

But now, if I click on update button in administrative panel of 123Solar (I haven't MeterN installed in my system) the system notify me :
"An install directory already exist /var/www/_NEW/ with 123Solar 1.6.9.1 dated from 10 December 2016 22:40:01. Please, finish that preinstallation"

How can I finish the installation?
May I copy the estracted files in a specific directory to run automatically the updated version?
It seems I had the same problem just the last update... a few month ago, but now I don't remember the way to solve it....
May you help me?
Thank you for your contribution,
Cheers

Andrea

Hi Andrea,

To avoid losing data, you better need to delete the _NEW/123solar content, then restart the update.

To complete the installation, you need to rename the old directory as a backup and move the newly created one

Code: Select all

[root@plugpc ~]# sudo mv /var/www/123solar/  /var/www/123solar.bak/
[root@plugpc ~]# sudo mv  /var/www/_NEW/123solar/  /var/www/

Thank you JeanMarc,

but something is gone wrong (it was obviously due to my inability!).
So, with a lot of patience I restored the previous (.bak) situation and I'm running the 1.6.8.3 release again with the last configuration (I've 3 PVI 3.0 for total 9.0 Kw and 36 panels, 12 for each inverter).
All was really fine and perfect until I decided to update the system :-)

Now, the situation - after clicking on update button in admin panel - is:

"To start the procedure, log on your system and create a writable install directory named /var/www/_NEW"
"[root@plugpc ~]# mkdir -m 777 /var/www/_NEW/"

I'll try again, as required, I hope to be successful, this time! ;-)
Thanks a lot, I'll keep you aligned :-)
Andrea

Latest 123Solar 1.6.9.1 version has been preinstalled in /var/www/_NEW/
Stopping 123solar

To complete the installation, you need to rename the old directory as a backup and move the newly created one.
Beware: Don't use a file manager, use those commands bellow in a terminal.

[root@plugpc ~]# sudo mv /var/www/123solar/ /var/www/123solar.20161211/
[root@plugpc ~]# sudo mv /var/www/_NEW/123solar/ /var/www/123solar/


thank you again,

Andrea

When I upgraded it created a new directory _INSTALL, and everything went fine except that at final step pressing continue does not go to the admin page but load again update2.php giving an error.

Yes, no error, a lot of green icons :)
On two installation I had to create _INSTALL directrory, because www was not owned by www-data, but apart this and on other installation everything went find.
I have still one plant to upgrade. If you wish I can wait, for further indication or I can just grab the screenshots.
Just tell me.

These are the screenshoots when updating 123solar:

As you see grenn litghts. Then I executed the moving commands

and here you see the directory listing.

If I press continue once, nothing happen. If I press it again it seems to try to update again 123solar and so it reaises the following error.

When I updated metern everything went ok, and the temporary directory is still named _NEW instead of _INSTALL.

I replace the temp directory as _INSTALL in newer version. Maybe you don't wait enough for the move to complete
