UMC memory expansion for database file

Alessandro Munari 2 weeks ago in Ideas • updated by Vladimir Ovchinnikov 1 week ago 5

Hi, I noticed that the UMC server has a USB port. Is there any possibily to use this port to store the Server database ?

Maybe it requires some changes on server to select in wich path to store the database file.

If I use a 30Gb USB memory drive, I can store very large ammount of data into the UMC server.

Is there any possibilities ?


You can connect to UMC USB-flash. However, the storage path for the iRidium server system database is reserved. We do not recommend changing it.

You can create a non-removable user base. Then move the database to another media and create a link to the new location in the Database directory.

any idea on how to do this ?


mybase.Open('MyBase.db', true);

Here the true parameter is undeleted folder. Documentation here.

After creating the user base:

1) To stop the iRidium server.

2) Directory /mnt/mmcblk0p1/iRidium Server/DataBase/UserDB/ move to USB-flash.

3) Create a link in /mnt/mmcblk0p1/iRidium Server/DataBase/ to the moved directory.

Same method can be applied also if I have a network path. for example a shared folder on a server or NAS ?

or it is just working internally in UMC server ?

Do I need to mount the shared folder path ?


If you have a NAS, you need to mount your network directory to the local file system. We did not check whether it would be possible to mount on CIFS or NFS, as UMC was not planned for such tasks. However, you can try.
