My sad story:
I have an emonPi and emonTX (wanting to add a second one I purchased a few years back not yet commissioned) reading different lines usage and PV production.
I can still access the Setup page and the log shows continuous updates but no info is shown on the dashboards.
If I would take a new Micro SD card and do a fresh install
( GitHub - openenergymonitor/emonhub: Python service linking and decoding input to MQTT & Emoncms ) is there a way I can export all the input settings, feeds, graphs, and dashboard settings so I can just copy that to the new MicroSD
The historical data currently on the disk is not that important to me.
Any pointers to get me on the right track from square 1 will really be appreciated.
Yes, if you buy a new SD can install a fresh copy of EmonCMS/SD on that, then put the old SD card into a USB reader, and plug that you your Pi. On booting the Pi you will have afresh install of EmonCMS on the new card, with the option under the Admin menu to import all the old data, setttings, and dashboards from from the old SD card in the USB reader. It works great!
The only thing to bear in mind is if you installed anything else, like NodeRed, that won’t be on the new installation, you’ll have to apply that manually.
I was not aware of this feature!!
Thank you @borpin and team for developing this!!!
Thanks @Vster for your reply!!
@borpin and @Vster ,
Thanks for your kind help.
I was able to reload the software and to import previous settings and databases.
I like the new interface!!
I still do not get any readings from any of the sensors.
If I scroll back to the date that is reported on the FEEDS page as the last feed, all my previous readings are still intact. Awesome!.
Feeds on feed/view all shows “inactive”
Input on /input/view are all n/a and NULL
I have no idea where to start.
Could the RPi be faulty,?
Could the emonPi board be faulty?
I do have a Pi 3B + > can I replace it to test?
Any pointers would be appreciated
I am not sure if these are any clues
Here you can see the sudden stop of feed on 3 Nov
A dashboard confirming the stop of feed
So the issue is that the emonhub service has not started correctly.
Go to the emonhub page in emoncms and send us the log.
Check the LOGLEVEL is DEBUG.
