Upgrade emoncms via ssh

Good morning,

I would like to update my emonbase (Raspberry 4) to the latest version of emoncms via ssh. It’s possible ?

Thank you

Hello @michelino yes you can run the command that is usually run from the UI manually:

/opt/openenergymonitor/EmonScripts/update/service-runner-update.sh all

It’s also possible to do a selective update e.g:

Emoncms only:

/opt/openenergymonitor/EmonScripts/update/service-runner-update.sh emoncms

Emonhub only:

/opt/openenergymonitor/EmonScripts/update/service-runner-update.sh emonhub

One for the docs…

Thanks Trystan,
let me start by saying that I have 2 servers, one master and one slave.

I mainly use mariadb as a database for convenience as I also query the database with external functions.

Before updating the main server I wanted to update the slave with the latest version of emoncms. The current emoncms version of slave is 11.0.9

my configuration is

For future reference, when posting code or output, please put 3 ‘backticks’ (normally found at the top left of the keyboard) on a line of their own before the code, and 3 more backticks also on a line of their own after the code:


If it is something like php you can add a language identifier after the first 3 backticks: ```php or even ```text if you don’t want any language markup applied.

Hello @michelino

Looks like you are running the script as root, which is giving the error that you are seeing when running the script. Can you run the script as the pi user?
