Upgrading and uninstalling

Upgrade

To gain access to the latest features and bug fixes you will need to upgrade the Dataplicity client software running on your Pi. We recommend we do this regularly.

How to do it:

  1. Get the install command you used when you first added your Pi. You can get this by hitting the "Add a device" button on your dashboard.
  2. Before you type it in, use su raspberry to switch to a user which has root privileges (or any other account that you can use sudo from).
  3. Now type in the command you got in step 1.
The code that upgrades Dataplicity looks something like this. Copy it in at the Pi prompt.

The upgrade process will update your Dataplicity client software to the latest available release, and if your Pi is connected to the internet you'll see the new features almost immediately.

Uninstall

You're unlikely to need to uninstall Dataplicity, but if you do you can run these lines of code, either directly onto your Pi or from the Dataplicity terminal:

sudo rm -f /etc/supervisor/conf.d/tuxtunnel.conf
sudo service supervisor restart

Warning: Before proceeding with the steps below make sure that you're not using the supervisor application to manage other programs than dataplicity.

sudo apt-get purge supervisor
sudo rm -r /opt/dataplicity
sudo rm -r /etc/supervisor
sudo reboot
