    LMS: 8.1.1 to 8.2 with Docker and Synology

    Hi:

    I have an LMS 8.1.1 server running “dockerized” in my Synology 918+. I would like to know how tu update to 8.2. I think I remember Michael Herger explained me how to do this update in a Docker and Synology but I am not sure.

    Could anybody help me how to do the update, without losing 8.1.1. data ? I want to maintain all my 8.1.1 config. I.e. the Spotty config

    Thank you very much

    JP

    This really depends on how you installed it in the first place. You
    should be running a tag other than the version number (eg. "latest"). In
    that case you could simply re-download it, wipe the (stopped) containers
    data (there's a menu to do this in the DSM), then restart.

    If you installed the 8.1.1 build specifically you'd have to delete the
    current container first, before creating a new one with the latest
    image. If you've correctly set it up, then the settings would be stored
    on your host anyway.

    I don’t remember. I think I installed the latest tag. With Spotty, it works so well, that I m afraid to break my system.

    Ohh wow that's even easier then I thought. I was cloning settings after downloading latest version (of same tag) but "delete data and restart" sounds a lot better. Will try it soon. Thanks Michael!

    Can anyone confirm this works and what the proper action is. There is an option to CLEAR and another to DELETE. I just want to be confident I'm not going to lose anything or have to re-setup.

    Just updated Docker and the CLEAR option has changed to RESET. I assume using the RESET option resets LMS and I will have to setup LMS from scratch again? If so is there any way to export the LMS config with LMS?

    Yeah, that's the most intimidating, poorly wording I've seen in a while.
    And trust me: it was even worse in the German version where they managed
    call both options the same...

    The wording doesn't really have to do with LMS specifically, of course.
    "Reset" would only reset the container, while "Delete" would indeed
    delete the container and its configuration. But if you've set it up
    correctly, the LMS settings, cache etc. are stored externally. Therefore
    "Reset" is what you need. It causes the container to be re-built.

    Thanks for the replies. So just to be clear. If I select RESET will I lose any on my settings inside of LMS or will it just upgrade?
