The major change with server 2.5.x and client 2.5.x is a complete redesign how settings are handled. The goal is to make it more explicit and consistent.
- Each setting has a button next to it which switches between inheriting the setting from the group, using the configuration value on the configuration page and using the value from the client, and for some setting merging client and server settings together
- File backup paths are now a normal setting just like any other. No more separation between paths to backup configured on the client and default directories to backup
This is a critical area of UrBackup and as such needs a lot of testing. Focus should be on if the 2.4.x client still more or less works with the 2.5.x server (and especially doesn’t loose its connection settings for Internet servers).
Auto-update is currently not poosible (no signatures).
Thanks for any help with testing and feedback!
As always: Replace the executables (via the installers) and the database of the server/client will be updated on first running it.
Place the files from the update directory into C:\Program Files\UrBackupServer\urbackup or /var/urbackup to auto-update clients. Disable Download client from update server in the server settings to prevent the server from downloading the current version.
On Linux e.g. with this update script: https://github.com/ptempier/get_urbackupclient/blob/master/updateclient.sh
Downgrade process (server)
Stop the UrBackup server, restore
C:\Program Files\UrBackupServer\urbackup or
/var/urbackup from a backup before upgrade and then install the previous version over the beta release.
