Ampache update

Post by simpledisaster »

Hi there,

I was wondering if it was possible to include an update of the music streaming server software Ampache. The version on Dietpi is 3.8.6-release. In the mean time they did a whole version jump to 4.1.1 with a bunch of changes (not in pre-release anymore). I believe that the jump now is big enough to have the update be worth it :)

Thanks!
Vincent

Hi,

many thanks for your request. DietPi is installing Ampache directly from GitHub https://github.com/ampache/ampache/arch ... ter.tar.gz
I did a small test installation on my RPI3B+ and I got installed Ampache 4.1.1-release. This is the latest version available.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Hi, you can update your version with dietpi-software reinstall 40.
Since dependencies are reinstalled as well, this implies the webserver and PHP, hence keep an eye on any custom config changes you did, backups are created of every overwritten/updated config file.

I added this info to our online docs: viewtopic.php?p=554#p554
Planned to add an update option right into dietpi-software for all titles which are neither based on APT packages nor have an internal updater.

I finally had time to try it out and I can confirm that it works fine. For a hassle-free configuration I recommend using a fresh config by using the following code after creating a backup of the old config:

Code: Select all

cp ampache.cfg.php ampache.cfg.php.bak
rm ampache.cfg.php
cp ampache.cfg.php.dist ampache.cfg.php

Thank you so much for this quick and awesome fix!!
