Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I use EMBY server on my Qnap (firmware 4.2.4)

My Emby current version is 3.0.5724.6 with Mono 4.2.1.0

I'd like to upgrade to a new version 3.2.xxx 

 

Can you tell me if i could do this update simply?

Should i backup settings ans how?

Can you advise me what to do to prepare this upgrade?

 

PS: I bought Emby Premiere to get backup Plugin but i cannot register this because the 3.0.5724 does not have Premiere section! So no Backup plugin available !

 

Thanx

I would suggest backing up the .db files manually, then doing a clean installation of the latest version. Then once that's done, then you can try putting the userdata db file back in it's original place.

Hi,  Thank you Luke for your quick answer.

I thought, as you explained here https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Backup , informations were in library.db ? 

I have nearly no special configuration. My biggest customizations are on my movies datas (have the right imdb data, get some back image, ...) and also I'd like to keep "watched data" information.

I have no plugin except Kodi Sync.

 

Do you think just backup and paste back only userdata.db will be enough?

 

Pb is that, clean install mean deleted old installation and then no possible backup!! I could get 3.0.5818 installation file but no more 1.151015 (my qnap Emby version) !

 

Copy from my db files:

Me again  :D

 

I just read that the Qnap app center version is mediabrowser and the manual one is Emby. Both are the same server but they both create their own directory during install; therefore, they work independently .

I have the "Mediabrowser" version.

 

Maybe can i install manual Emby version without deleting Mediabrowser until evrything's working ? Just by stopping mediabrowser app? 

What do you think of that ?

Your old version will store user data in that separate library file. You should back up all of the DB files though just for safe keeping. You should probably also restore users.db

So i just have to copy userdata_v2.db, library.db and maybe user.db. That's right?

 

No Sql import?

Just user and userdata are the only ones to restore
