Running UniFi Controller on a Pine A64+ 1Gb board
#1
Hi all!

Pine64 is a very cost effective solution for running the UniFi Controller. The installation process is a bit tricky though. Hence sharing my experience: https://ishwestscriptwault.wordpress.com...pine64-en/

Enjoy!

Did you get the new 5.5.19 version running.
I'm stuck in the upgrade with constant error in the log wrt tomcat

I confirm the problem.
Controller fails before (or while?) converting the db from 5.4 to 5.5.

So a clean install might work.
I'll look into it further.

In the mean time I succeeded.
However was a big pain..

The upgrade always fails, the way I managed was to install the unifi controller Windows version, than use that to upgrade. Than transfer the upgraded file to a clean version on the pine

Thanks for the update!

This imho suggests that the migration process relies either on a native library or an external program that is missing.

Or it might be just a bug in the new controller version :-)

I was able to upgrade with a fresh install of 5.5.19.  The trick for me was to install the latest stable mongodb before attempting to upgrade.  The directions for installing mongodb on ubuntu are at https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial...-on-ubuntu.
