Previous install notification

Unread post by gurutech »

Just had a huge issue on my test machine - wanted to find a way to avoid similar issues in the future...

Installed Madsonic (latest beta version) on my test machine, everything was working fine. Had to restart the server due to an OS update (running Centos 7).

After restart, could no longer login to the test machine as a user other than "guest".

After uninstalling, renaming the /var/madsonic folder, reinstalling, I still could not login.

Stopped the Madsonic service, and for some reason, I could STILL get to the web page, but could not login.

On a whim, I checked if SUBsonic was running, and it was! Stopped this service, could no longer get to webpage.

Since this was my test machine, I just reinstalled Madsonic, removed SUBsonic, and all is good. Just have to re-set up my settings and I'll be fine.

In hindsight, I could have simply renamed my original /var/madsonic folder back, but decided against this as I may have messed something else up in the process.

Wanted to know if there can be a check placed into the install process for Madsonic where it will check for a previous version of either Madsonic OR Subsonic, and notify you regarding this and allow you to continue the installation, upgrade the current installation, or halt the installation.

Hi there,

Generally Subsonic and Madsonic installation can coexist side by side since version greater 5.0

look if the installation and database init is already done if you plan to reboot your system!

in your case check installation logs

http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/installation.jsp#rpm

http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/installation.jsp#debian

all installation packages should detect old installations.

Never really had problems installing a new version of Madsonic on top of an older version (since version 5 I guess).

But this one threw me for a loop, wasn't expecting it at all. Totally forgot I had even installed Subsonic on this test machine, and never bothered to even check!
