Re: How to quit VRS safely? (clean shutdown)

Thanks! That worked. I've now got it integrated into a script that runs as a cron job.

Re: How to quit VRS safely? (clean shutdown)

Great question. I was just looking for a way to do the same thing. At the end of each month, I run a cron job to clean up the DB using SQlite, and strip off flight entries older than 150 days. This keeps the DB from getting huge. I'm pretty sure I've corrupted the DB by performing this task without ...

Using Metabase to summarize DB plugin results

FYI I've been looking for a web-based dashboard that could summarize my flight and aircraft stats coming off VRS. If you have the DB writer plugin installed, there's a great application that you can easily summarize data(real time) with. You don't need to know SQL scripts or PHP(I don't), as this is...

Re: Enriching VRS Live Stream

I have a similar question related to this topic. If my server pulls a registration down from PlaneBase, and it can't associate an operator code with it, but yet it knows what airline it is. Then I go into my basestation,sqb with SQlite and update the blank operator code with the proper one. Then in ...

Custom Content Plugin for Rpi

I've downloaded the custom content plugin for Linux. I'm able to get it running on the Pi. Is this another case of in order to configure the plugin, there must be something inside the web admin options access? I don't see anything in there that deals with the custom content plugin. Of course, there'...

Re: Linking ICAO and/or Reg #'s to operator flags

I want to confirm that if VRS sees an airline, and the Operator Flag Code is incorrect, then somehow I need to tell it the correct 3 letter code. This is one of the 2 ways to get the flags to show up correctly. I assume that I need to modify the Basestation DB SQL file right? I've got this going on ...

Re: Reports not working on Rpi

I saw this post, and have been having the same issue. I too am running a Rpi2. So I tried implementing the solution, and I got this error shown below: I'm using the web interface, not the GUI because it will crash if I go into there and try and enable the plugin. From what I've seen on other posts t...
