Howto missing for upgrade Twonky Media Server

Post by elgonzo » Tue Jan 31, 2012 3:56 pm

Hallo,

Can anybody give me a tip/help/link for a description, how to update an existing Media Server on Debian?
I only can find an installation manual.

Thanx!

Just run the installer.

Personally I use the manual install option and move the old version out of the way (eg rename it to twonkyserver-6.0.38 and then install the new version. Then I've always got a simple step to revert to the previous version if there are issues.
No longer running Twonky

like DaemonBeetle I run TMS on a Linux server and definitely want a plan B if an update fails. What I do differently though, is that I unpack over the existing install after making a backup. That way my settings and caches are retained.

e.g. when I updated from 6.0.37 to .38

Code: Select all

# cd /usr/local/
# tar -cvj --exclude=cache -f twonkymedia-6.0.37.tar.bz2 twonkymedia
# unzip ~pcfe/tmp/twonkymedia-i386-glibc-2.2.5-6.0.38.zip
HTH
