Using dataplicity


I have a local pi hosted emoncms. I have just installed dataplicity and updated emoncms with git pull but dataplicity will not connect.
Do I have to take specific steps to pull in the changes that @glyn.hudson refers to in the datap[licity thread.
I cannot use emonPi update as it is no longer showing on my administration page.
I have in the past used emonPi update and then altered the settings.php to match my setup.
