I had a previous post titled.

that thread some information on what caused the

fix it? It would help me to
we make the upgrade
as failure-proof as possible, and it would
likely help anyone
else who has similar issues.
sure what I did to cause the original failure. I finally
completed/fixed the upgrade by dumping the database using this
thread. I did not restore my old database, just created a new one.
I made the new database, I ran the mythbackend setup, and it was able
to upgrade then.
Now. a new issue

How many hosts are involved here? Is it a
frontend/backend system? If not, you need to
fix your server settings
with mythtv-setup so that you don't use
127.0.0.1 anywhere in any of the
"IP address" settings.
It seems that the first program failed to
connect to the
database whereas the
second program failed to
master backend (but successfully connected to
is a seperate frontend backend. I have three frontends and one
backend. I have two of the frontends shutoff until I get at least
this one frontend working with the backend.
will check all fo my ip setting to make sure 127.0.0.1 is not setup
That likely means that
/home/kevin/.mythtv/config.xml (which was used to
get the DB config for the 2nd program) is good, but the
$HOME/.mythtv/config.xml for the user running the first program
good. You'd just need to
copy the config.xml from
under your home to
the same location in the other user's home.
will try that when I get home.
> I use a hdhomerun and 2 ati hdtv wonder
cards. The wonder cards are not yet installed, but they are in the

not a problem. The opposite--having the cards configured in Myth
not present in the machine--is a problem, but if Myth doesn't know
about the cards, they can't cause any issues.
