" If you restore from a backup and still see “There was an issue loading your database” , try restoring from your oldest backup. If you’re not having any luck with your oldest backup, then the only alternative is to start with a fresh database."
I tried reinstall Roon Server, restore database backup and still see that screen. Before the update I made this morning, everything was fine, and you now saying, “hmm, try to start fresh database”, are you kidding me? I’ve been managing this database for a few years.
If you approach the problems you have caused in this way, there is nothing but say goodbye to you for good.
Appreciate your apology, but hey - give up is marked as the solution?
None of my backups restore, so my best guess (being a new-ish customer) is that your backup facility doesn’t work too well. Or, your new software isn’t capable of reading the 1.8 build 831 database.
So, what now? I see people also saying starting from an empty database doesn’t work either. Do we wait for your guidance or is any to be forthcoming?
Since we know 880 (apparently) causes a lot of people a lot of problems, let us drop back and proceed forward carefully. At least maybe we could get back to working. And I know to disable automatic updates for the future.
Both don’t work. I understand it’s not your fault. But developers who refuse to admit their mistake and face it. It’s not OK to lose forever a significant portion of paying people. Thanks and good bye Rebeka
Well, no. I’ve held off a little based on hoping you guys could come back with something better than “just start over.” I’m not in as bad a shape as some here with years of DB preening, I’m only about 3 months in. But now wondering if it’s going to keep being hard to stay.
I’ll probably try from square 1 later today.
I really wish I had better news to share, but there’s no getting around the fact that this was always a recipe for disaster.
We have pretty modest minimum requirements for small libraries:
i3 CPU or better
Microsoft ended Windows 7 support two years ago and an SSD is an absolute must – reliability aside, the performance you get over an HDD is unreal. I’m surprised you’ve been able to tolerate Roon’s performance with an HDD, it must be unbearable.
The AMD Phenom 9500 is extremely underpowered compared to an i3 processor, but you might be able to get away with it if you upgrade to Windows 10 and install an SSD.
