Failed upgrade to 3.7.0

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Failed upgrade to 3.7.0

Post by pkiener »

OK, I messed up somehow and need help. I have been running CumulusMX on raspberry-pi; most recent build 3088. Extracted the files from the 3.7.0 zip file and copied to the CumulusMX folder on the raspberry-pi. Copied my saved files "Cumulus.ini"; "cumulusMX.sh; "cumulusmxsh.conf" to the main directory. Then copied my saved data files into the new data directory. Now when I attempt to run the new version, I get a message that it could not read the "cumulusmx.db" file.

I then delete all my CumulusMX files from the rasp-pi and attempt to re-load the previous build (3088). Now when I attempt to run CumulusMX, I get a message that there is a newer version (build 3089) available, and does not start.

I note that when I unzip the download for b3098, there is an additional file "AlterSQLTables3098.sql", but I do not know what to do with this file. I have a strong sense that this is at the base of my problem.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Paul

It sounds like a permissions issue on your new folder.

That message is just a warning message, it does not stop Cumulus doing anything.

The "AlterSQLTables3098.sql" file is just for people you use a MySQL database - you can ignore it.

I think we need to see your log files please.

Mark,
Thanks for the quick reply! Sorry, but there are no files in the MXdiags folder, nor could I find any other log files.

Attached is a screen shot of the terminal when I attempt to run CumulusMX.

Does the cumulusmx.db file exist in your /data folder? If its not there Cumulus will create it.

That it is failing to do that points again to file permissions.

Try running this command...

sudo chmod a+rwx /path/folder

obviously with the full path and folder name of your Cumulus folder

did you stop CumulusMX session first of all before you copied over the files?

Simon,
Yes, I did stop CumulusMX running before I upgraded. In fact, I deleted all the files in my CumulusMX folder/subfolders before copying the new version.

Mark,
I ran the terminal command as suggested, but I still get the same result as before (the screen shot earlier). Attached are screen shots of the relevant files/folders (at least I hope are relevant).

Thanks, rogerthn. Tried that, but no luck.

I have even tried renaming "cumulusmx.db" to "cumulusmx.db.old", but CumulusMX still would not start. No log files created; no new "cumulusmx.db" created.

Just stabbing in the dark so to speak, Are you using a different account than previously used to run cumulus or creating the new folders perhaps? Definately sound like a permission issue.

How are you starting CumulusMX?

UPDATE: Prior to this, with multiple suggestions, I was not able to get CumulusMX running on my pi. I remember seeing one of the messages stating that cumulusmx.db could not be opened. So thinking that the db was corrupt, I decided to go ahead and redo the pi from scratch and install CumulusMX on the newly formatted drive. I now have CumulusMX working, but am unable to have it start automatically on reboot. References to the start/stop script no longer are active. But, I'm still looking.

So thanks to everyone who responded and offered suggestions to help. I appreciate it.

Paul
