ansvr-0.12 also has some logging changes. A new log file is created each time ansvr starts, and log files older that 30 days old are automatically removed. When ansvr is started with
-d it will now send output to both the terminal window and the log file.
You probably do not need to upgrade from 0.11 unless you are interested in tweaking the advanced options. Another reason to upgrade would be if you are using the
-d option to start ansvr and you would like to start getting a log file to have available for diagnosing problems.
Chris - maybe you could update your package to include 0.12 at some point? Thanks.
To upgrade to 0.12, download ansvr-0.12.tar.gz and save in the folder
Then, open cygwin terminal and paste in the following command:
tar xfz /tmp/ansvr-0.12.tar.gz -C /opt
Next, update your Windows shortcut to point to the new version: right click the shortcut, click Properties, then paste the following into the Target field:
C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -lc /opt/ansvr-0.12/ansvr
Finally, restart the server if it is currently running:
- go to http://127.0.0.1:8080/api/config and click “Terminate ansvr”
- open your ansvr shortcut to start ansvr
