one of my fans asked me how to upgrade or install a new image to dm with all
the setting of the old image ?
so firest we had to get Total Commander or other client FTP
DCC ,Flash Wizard or other program for Flash new image.
let us begin:
First will have to copy all programs installed and settings from DM.
From FTP will copy in hdd what we have installed in DM:
/var/bin - attention do not copy enigmanet ! Copy only CAM and SCRIPT installed !
-movieplayer_linux.xml - if exist.
-movieplayer_win.xml - if exist.
-satellites.xml - actual list with satellites and transponders. Optional.
/var/keys - copy all.
/var/script - copy script for launch CAM and installed programs ! check in Blue Panel to see what CAM you have and check Plugins ( Tools ) to see installed programs.
- copy all.
- attention do not copy link to another directory, like link to scce !
/var/uninstall - copy all.
For safety write down your DM password and settings from Communication Setup.
For safety make a backup copy of your image and settings with Flash Wizard.
then Install new image with Flash Wizard and restart DM,
If image it is correct programmed DM will start and settings menu will appear.
Do not set anything.
Reinstall your settings and programs.
From telnet change your password in DM with old one.
From FTP copy saved settings and programs in the same place.
/var/etc - optional
Restore attribute 755 at files from:
/var/bin - all
It is very important do not restart/reboot DM from menu/telnet/sw because DM will save his setting over your restored ones.
DM will restart with new image and ALL settings as before.
