Ok so you just update by installing the latest version the same way you installed 4.0.2. Does that make sense?

Running Debian Stretch (do I need Buster before I upgrade Emby?). How do i update the emby server instance? 

 

I've looked all over this forum and in the wiki and I see nothing (except below) that talks about how to upgrade/update. 

 

Is it:

apt-get install --only-upgrade mediabrowser

?? I read this in another post in the forum.

 

also, any known issues with this upgrade that I should be aware of?

Hi, what version are you currently running? Nowadays with our newer packages you simply install the latest on top of your existing version.

@Luke version 4.0.2.0

 

I've backed up my var/lib/emby/ directory too just in case it botches my configs

I am running an old version (Version 3.2.70.0) of emby server on debian 8.

 

Can I just install the latest version on top without loosing my configuration and libraries?

If not- is there a list of files and dir's that I can manually backup and restore? I searched, but could not find anything. (I prefer manual backup over the backup plugin)

 

When I do "apt-get install --only-upgrade emby-server" it tells me that the server is already the latest version. I guess my sources seem to be old.

 

 

 

Cheers

For a version that old you might consider a fresh install. Otherwise I would suggest updating to 4.0 first, and then 4.2 after that.

Thanks Luke. I have put a lot of time into my libraries and would hate to lose all that data.

My problem is the following: I do not know which files and directories to save and then restore in order to keep my library and configuration. The directory structure seems to be a little different in the newer versions.
