Help updating B2 to 2.4.1

Can anyone help me with the instructions to upgrade a B2 to version 2.4.1? They used to be found via this page: http://forum.mybubba.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=3758 and have this link: http://wiki.excito.org/wiki/index.php/Re-installing_your_Bubba_Server_/_Bubba2_/_B3 But the link no longer works Cheers

Re: Excito in bankruptcy

I've been using bubba servers for just over seven years now and all three generations are still in service in my loft. They've been utterly reliable and a joy to use and practise my Linux skills on. I am extremely disappointed to learn of Excito's problems and I wish all their staff well. Others hav...

Cheers guys. I came across your method, ther, last night but it didn't quite work. I need to study the log a bit more carefully to see why not. Does it have to be installed as root (sudo)?

Re: B2 migrate to B3: NFS Problem

Ubi Thanks for your posts. I've changed the named entries in exports to IP addresses and it hasn't made a practical difference. adrian@corsair:~$ sudo mount -a mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting b3:/home/shares/adrian adrian@corsair:~$ showmount -a b3 All mount points on b3: 192.168.0...

Re: B2 migrate to B3: NFS Problem

codsair was a deliberate temporary mis-spelling of corsair in exports to see what b2 and b3 would do. b2 spotted the error, b3 didn't. This seems to be significant but I haven't been able to figure out why yet. I'll update exports to use IP addresses rather than aliases and post back with the differ...

Re: B2 migrate to B3: NFS Problem

Ubi Thanks for your reply and you are correct that the mount process is unaffected by the UIDs and GIDs (I understand this and that they would become 'effective' only after mounting). I should not have put that information in my post! Some more information... The b3's exports file is a copy of b2's ...

B2 migrate to B3: NFS Problem

Hi Thanks to the forum for solving my issue with sending emails from my b3 (http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4627). I'm now hoping for a bit more help with replacing my b2 with a b3. This time it's NFS which is beating me up. As far as I can tell, I mirrored my b2's NFS setup on the b3 bu...

Re: How do I get b3 to send its own emails

Ubi, thanks for your email. The decision to install ssmtp was based on ignorance of the command 'mail'! In summary, therefore: 'D'oh!' Fortunately I'm in the early days of configuring the new b3 to take over my b2's functions so system borkage will be corrected by a reinstallation of the OS. I'll in...

Re: How do I get b3 to send its own emails

Guys, thanks for your replies. rog I'm reasonably confident with scripting but perhaps I do need more basic help. What I'm looking for is a command I can use in a script to send a message to my email address (gmail). After my post I did find something that worked; ssmtp. This does the trick but, whe...

How do I get b3 to send its own emails SOLVED

Hi

Can someone please help me with a problem?

I'd like my b3 to be able to send emails to me when it encounters problems with cronjobs, etc. I've reserved a gmail address for it but now I'm stuck and a trawl of the forum has come up blank.

Thanks in anticipation
