I had 3 user accounts created in my local Blynk Server 0.15.2
I just downloaded 0.15.3 and stopped 0.15.2 and executed 0.15.3 and then went into Admin console and found all my accounts gone
Was there a step I needed to do to move my user accounts over ?
(NB. I thought, well I’ll just keep executing 0.15.2 Blynk server and they will be there still - but unfortunately they are gone when I go into the admin - don’t understand what has happened).
any help pls ?
Hello. Please show me how do you run your local server. Do you specify datafolder?
java -jar server -0.15.2.jar -dataFolder /path
@mars and what is path in your case? Does this folder contains some files within it?
in my case the server runs in:
CMD line when I run the server says:
“All server output is stored in folder ‘C:\users\m\Downloads.\logs’ file”
do you use user profiles in “c:\users\m\Downloads”? Is there any chance you cleaned Download folder for some reason?
I should add in c:\users\m\Downloads\logs\users I can see three files email@example.com which are logs of all three users
definitely not. I simply downloaded new server-0.15.3 jar file and ran it.
In that case this folder should contain files “u_EMAIL.user”
in the Downloads folder ?
I can’t find any files with *.user extension
BUT I did a search on y c: drive and I found them in the following directory:
Any reason they would be there ?
Would I need to move them to \Downloads and re-run Blynk server ?
Well, that is possible only in case you run server with dataFolder “c:\home\pi\Blynk”.
Yeap. Please try.
still shows no users.
well I solved it but don’t know why and how this occurred as I have always ran with dataFolder /path.
I changed it and ran server with following command line:
java -jar server-0.15.3.jar -dataFolder c:\home\pi\Blynk
thanks for helping out. I must say the support you provide on this forum is excellent and makes me want to invest more time and effort in the Blynk eco-system for my iOT applications.
NB: is there any documentation that explain the file structure and description of files/directories that the local Blynk server uses ? (apart from basic information that is currently published ?)
@mars thanks! Regarding documentation - it doesn’t exist at the moment .
