Following queries by @martin @Harbrimar & @fatherofgrafton we have identified an issue with the software on emonPi and emonBase units shipped from our shop in the last week. The cause was an update to the master image that had installed mistakenly the now depreciated emoncms settings.php file.
We will be emailing everyone who has ordered a unit in the last week to offer either a replacement SD card or for those confident in a little SSH the steps to fix, which are:
1. Enable SSH using the push button to scroll through the emonPi menu then press and hold on the “enable ssh screen”. Or on an emonBase, add a empty file called ‘ssh’ to the boot partition by placing the SD card in a USB SD card reader connected to your computer, see https://guide.openenergymonitor.org/technical/credentials/.
2. Connect via SSH using putty, download here:
host: You will need to enter your emonPi’s IP address, as shown on the LCD
username: pi password: emonpi2016
3. Once you are connected, execute the following command
sudo rm /var/www/emoncms/settings.php
then reboot the emonpi
Sorry for the hassle that this has caused
