Thanks for the replies Stefan & Ralf.
Stefan, I generally do not backup apt installed software, I think that is exactly what apt is for. Besides, when I do a
find / -name "*egroup* the output is so voluminous I’d have no idea what I would need to backup.
Ralf, I had the override yml file and all your commands executed without error, but the application still would not come up.
So I apt removed EGroupware and used the install commands from the website:
echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/eGroupWare/xUbuntu_18.04/ /' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/server:eGroupWare.list
sudo wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:eGroupWare/xUbuntu_18.04/Release.key -O "/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/server:eGroupWare.asc"
apt install egroupware-docker
OOPS! forgot to give the
--no-install-recommends so time to remove rocket and collabra:
apt remove egroupware-rocketchat:amd64
apt remove egroupware-collabora-key
OK! now I have my EGroupware installation up and running on my teeny tiny AWS EC2, no data loss.
I elected to use the distribution’s yml file, however, for some reason I am still running the released beta
egroupware-docker (20.1.20200613) hardy; urgency=low. Maybe because I did not delete all the override yml files in /etc/egroupware-docker directory?
I don’t mind running the beta release, I am the only user of the install and, being retired, it gives me something to do. Would you recommend removing the override yml to fall back to the 19.x release? Once the yml overrides are gone will docker revert to release 19? Or would I have to do a
apt remove in order to downgrade to 19.x? Will the working trunk software update show up again in
apt update? It is not there now.
One other thing, this procedure chewed up 20% of my free disk space, any suggestions where I can find files I may delete?
