Emonpi image on VirtualBox

Any way to export current Emonpi image to virtual environment?

Hello @Lappies you can build the same configuration as the emonPi image on a VM using the scripts here: GitHub - openenergymonitor/EmonScripts: Emoncms Stack Installation and Update scripts

Here are the instructions for installing on DigitalOcean as an example EmonScripts/digital-ocean-install.md at stable · openenergymonitor/EmonScripts · GitHub

You can then upload data from the emonPi to the VM using the emoncms sync module.

Don’t try the backup/restore - it takes across the settings files and that can seriously disturb things.

The USB import may work though depending on the HW the VM is on.
