Upgrading your SqueezeCenter server on Ubuntu

 

In a previous article I tried to explain the installation of the Squeezebox Server on the Tonido Plug. In this article I'll try to explain how to perform an upgrade of your existing Squeezecenter Server on Tonido (or Ubuntu as the Tonido Plug is based on Ubuntu 9.04).

What you're going to do is actually remove the old installation of the Squuezecenter server and install a new copy of the Squuezecenter server.

Prerequisites (what you need to get it working):

  • Hardware
    • Computer
    • TonidoPlug (optionally)
    • Internet connection
  • Software
    • Windows users might need Putty

 

The first thing you need to do is remove the 'old' installation of the Squuezecenter server, by SSH-ing (Windows user might want to use Putty) the following command:
# apt-get purge --yes squeezeboxserver

 

Next thing is cleaning up your Ubuntu installation by entering:
# apt-get autoclean

 

You might want to update your Ubuntu installation by using the following commands:
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade

 

Now you are ready to install the latest version of Squuezecenter server (Check the Squeezebox server version and location, by locating the latest version using your internet browser).
# wget http://downloads.slimdevices.com/SqueezeboxServer_v7.5.3/squeezeboxserver_7.5.3_all.deb
# dpkg -i squeezeboxserver_7.5.3_all.deb
# apt-get -f install

 

Now your Squeezebox Server should be upgraded, you can check it by locating it in your internet browser
http://YourSqueezeboxServerName:9000/
or
http://YourSqueezeboxServerIpAddress:9000/

 

If needed you can manually stop or start your Squeezebox Server
# /etc/init.d/squeezeboxserver stop
# /etc/init.d/squeezeboxserver start
