I have looked at the Backup part of the EmonPi and there is a footnote at the bottom starting : Warning: service-runner is not running and is required. To install service-runner see service-runner installation.
when i go to the link and try the commands through putty to help get it started and running i do no good at all these commands are:
sudo pip3 install redis
sudo ln -s /var/www/emoncms/scripts/services/service-runner/service-runner.service /lib/systemd/system
sudo systemctl enable service-runner.service
sudo systemctl start service-runner.service
systemctl status service-runner.service
Any ideas that might help get this service_runner going?, as i have about 18 month of data to backup and up load into the newer July 2020 emonPi image.
