Correct Way to Update Client



Can I check that I’m going about updating the client software the right way? I’m doing some troubleshooting which has necessitated uninstalling the client software.

To get reinstalled and fully up-to-date, I have:

  • Downloaded and installed the appropriate client-specific installer from the Urbackup Server Status page;
  • Downloaded and installed the latest client installer from the website over the top of the client-specific installation.

Is that the right way to preserve backup keys etc?



Why don’t you just let the server do the updating ?



Because sometimes I want to try a newer versions of the client app than the server has - for example, with beta releases.
And, as far as I can see, server version 2.3.6 is distributing Mac client version 2.2.6 at the moment, rather than 2.3.3…
