I'm in the same boat as MRobi. At this point, what is advisable? Do i start from scratch and copy the config over to a new jail?
Makarai can you outline steps on best course of action to upgrade to latest from 18.104.22.168 with maintaining watch status and configuration settings (if possible)?
So i am running one of the more recent betas which runs flawless for me. (22.214.171.124) which has been taken offline from @Luke for whatever reason.
I tested the 126.96.36.199 also extensivly so i would give this a try, further when you upgrade you should always just leave your existing emby installation intakt and create a new emby install first and copy you settings folder over, thats what i do, and i have never lost data and it always worked flawless.
Typically you have to perform the following actions.
1. Install emby
2. mount media
3. Copy over old data (if it does not work at least your old emby ist still working)
Install new version of emby on freenas 11.2u4 using the shell, which is super easy and you cannot really break anything.
1. install latest stable.
iocage fetch -P dhcp=on vnet=on bpf=yes allow_raw_sockets=1 -n emby-server.json --branch 'master'
2. mount media (same folder names as before) via the gui
3. copy data with rsync
#example check your folder path for your jail TANK
rsync -vrlpogth /path_to_OLD_jail/root/var/db/emby-server/ /path_to_NEW_jail/root/var/db/emby-server/
rsync -vrlpogth /mnt/TANK/iocage/jails/emby-server-OLD/root/var/db/emby-server/ /mnt/TANK/iocage/jails/emby-server-NEW/root/var/db/emby-server/
4. restart the new emby installation and check if everthing works
As soon there is another great working beta i can write a detailed update
