Upgrade tvheadend on synology NAS keeping settings
I installed the tvheadend-testing package in parallel to the old tvheadend-4.0 package on my synology nas.
- I stopped the old package
- I did a backup of the old config:
# cd /volume1/@appstore/tvheadend-4.0 # tar --exclude *.log -cvjf backup.tar.bz2 var
- I restored the settings in new package folder and changed ownership and permissions:
# cp backup.tar.bz2 /volume1/@appstore/tvheadend-testing # cd /volume1/@appstore/tvheadend-testing # rm -rf var # tar -xvjf backup.tar.bz2 # chown sc-tvheadend-testing:users var # cd var # find . | xargs chown sc-tvheadend-testing:users # cd dvr/log # chmod 700 *
- start the new package
- log in
All settings/networks/autorecs seem to be there, but my old finished recordings are gone. I made sure all restored files have proper permissions (
rwx-----) and proper owners (sc-tvheadend-testing:users) but it does not work.
