System update from pilight v7 to pilight v8
#1
I have an installed and working Raspberry with the pilight v7 running and managing many devices with lots of rules. 
I used a new SD Card and installed following your instructions the version 8. 

Everything is running well, but I do not get any feedback with pilight-receive. 

I used on v7 the default GPIOs for send and receive, do I need to change it?

I guess that many guys will have the question for the migration from v7 to v8. 
I'm open to everything you did a great job even with version 7.

What is the recommendation how to update to v8?

May be you can put a configuration template for this, thank you in advance.

best regards

Christian

Hi Christian,

I often find here it is easier if you post your config to give a starting point on what could be going wrong (make sure to put it in code tags [code ] [/code ] so it is easier to read). Smile

However, from the manual

"You must now specify which GPIO platform pilight is running on. Refer to the settings page for more information. "

https://manual.pilight.org/configuration...o-platform

Hello Josh,

thank you for the fast answer, yes I have seen the documentation already:
please find attached my config.json. I reduced it to the minimum to have at least one switch working, but until now no success:

Code:
{
 "devices": {
               "arbeit": {
                       "protocol": [ "kaku_switch" ],
                       "id": [{
                               "id": 21992446,
                               "unit": 1
                       }],
                       "state": "on"
               }
       },
       "rules": {},
       "gui": {
               "arbeit": {
                       "name": "Arbeitszimmer",
                       "group": [ "Funkschalter" ],
                       "media": [ "all" ],
                       "readonly": 0
               }
       },
       "settings": {
               "log-level": 6,
               "pid-file": "/var/run/pilight.pid",
               "log-file": "/var/log/pilight.log",
               "webserver-enable": 1,
               "webserver-root": "/usr/local/share/pilight/webgui",
               "webserver-http-port": 5001,
               "webserver-https-port": 5002,
               "gpio-platform": "raspberrypi3"
       },
       "hardware": {
               "433gpio": {
                       "sender": 0,
                       "receiver": 1
               }
       },
       "registry": {}
}

Avoiding my day job and nothing to read on theregister Smile

Can you change your post to put your reply in code tag (put [code ] and [/code ] at the begging and end without the spaces), formats it nicely. https://forum.pilight.org/announcements.php?aid=2

Lets start with the obvious one... are you using a raspberrypi3? and if you start in debug mode

sudo service pilight stop
sudo pilight-daemon -D &

Do you get any errors? Have you also checked if you have any loose connections or have you can you put your old SD card in to make sure that it is working?

I can access the webinterface.
And yes, if I put back the old SD card everything is working fine.
But with pilight-receive, I have no results in the version v8.

Update:
It is not the Raspberry PI 3
I got as information:


raspberrypi1b+ 

Let me investigate if I can solve it Wink

Hello Josh,

you can close the topic.
Thank you for your support. 

For all the others, if you do not know exactly which PI you have, just use:

Code:
cat /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/model;echo

This helped me, Angel 

Thank you for the great Tool and Development.
