@Harry-van-der-Wolf said in pre-release test for pimatic v0.9:
This topic mentions nowhere:
- where to get/download it (https://github.com/pimatic/pimatic/tree/v0.9.x ?)
- how to install 0.9 (fresh, in place e.g. upgrade from 0.8, some git upgrade in the current install?)
- whether you can “simply” copy your old config.json and database to the new version if you decided to install it in parallel
Yes, correctly! This is not mentioned since it does not (yet) belong here into the open group.
v0.9 is not yet released, it’s still in testing phase. We want to preserve questions from “common users” about howto and so on, since there are still some bugs that might be hard to handle. Also not all plugins are working yet!!
We’re having a beta test group for v0.9 experienced users (like you are), who installed the pre-release, and a new category for those where all questions for 0.9 can be asked.
I wanted to switch to 0.9 on my “backup” server, but I was short in time (and lazy ) and didn’t want to spend too much time last night. Also mentioning that there is a “v0.9 beta” would mention that there is some zip/tar.gz, but on the 0.9x pimatic branch is not a release version (yet).
check this link https://github.com/pimatic/pimatic/issues/859
there you will find “Installing pimatic pre-release …”.
follow this and you should be able to install it.
Keep in mind that you need npm2 and node 4.x. You are not able to run v0.9 and v0.8 in parallel. Furthermore you should make backups of everything!
You can use your config.json for 0.9, it will be converted automatically. (again - have a backup Regarding the database I am not sure, but I doubt that a copy of the v0.8 works
Would be nice if you join the v0.9 beta tester group
