Maintenance

When operating the system, you must supervise:

  • Monitor the utilization of hardware resources (CPU, RAM, free disk size)
  • Timely elimination of causes of hardware resource overload, or increase in hardware resources
  • Protection of the server operating system from unauthorized access
  • Protection of the system from DDoS-attacks
  • Data backup
  • Updating of the system when new versions are released by the developer
  • Deletion or transfer of old .log files

Backup

The database and the data directories specified in the docker-compose.yml file named data must be backed up:

/opt/getscreen/db/data
/opt/getscreen/download/data
/opt/getscreen/image/data
/opt/getscreen/storage/data

System update

To update the system, run the following commands:

cd /opt/getscreen/
sudo docker-compose pull
sudo docker-compose up -d

The Server and Download components make schema changes in the database on their own, if necessary.

For major upgrades, the developer can provide additional instructions which must be followed to correctly upgrade to the new version of the system.

Reset Main Administrator password

In case if main administrator's password been lost, you can reset it if you keep ssh access to the server. Please run command

cd /opt/getscreen
sudo docker exec -it getscreen-server /opt/server/server -reset-password

Command will display the new password:

The administrator password has been changed to [new password]

After that, container with server must be restarted:

cd /opt/getscreen
sudo docker-compose restart getscreen-server

Configure custom folder for video recordings storage

To configure storage of video recordings outside of standard /opt/getscreen folder, open docker-compose.yml file. Find section for getscreen-storage container
