Synology update procedure

Unread postby andyfitter » 08 Jan 2018, 11:39

Hi,

I see there is a new Synology package release. What is the procedure to update a Synology installation without losing my settings?

Thanks.

Andy.

Can't say exactly, but:

from the Download Page: Note :: Upgrades from older Madsonic 6.x versions are supported!

and from the Installer Page:
[...]
create folder: <Public>\Madsonic (for backup/restore)
[...]

So I guess, you need/should make a backup before upgrading and then choose "Restore" from the package installer.
(I haven't done this, but I saw the option to restore *before* the package was about to be installed. So you're not going loose any settings unless you click the correct checkbox, which is the only checkbox in the install procedure) ;-)
