    In Administrator create a new deployment profile for Raspberry. Upload all the configuration except Server settings (because they have different file paths).

    Hi Mr Mikhail,
    I searched all forum topic, but I haven’t find more information how to upload project to Raspberry Pi created on Windows.

    Is possible to upload directly from Windows OS to Raspberry Pi Apache server(localhost)?

    Thank you so much

    Hi,

    In your project open Server – Common Parameters and update directories. You can click “Default for Linux” there.
    Then use the above advice.
    Do you know how to create a new deployment profile?

    Thanks you. It’s clear.
    I know how to create new deployment profile, but set parameters correctly aren’t clearly.

    Hi.
    The way I pass the projects to RaspberryPI is:
    1- I install Rapidscada is RaspberryPI and then I verify that it works correctly.
    2 – I create the project in Windows and verify that it works correctly.
    3 – I create a copy of the windows SCADA folder in another place.
    4 – I delete the ScadaServerSvcConfig.xml file located in the copy \ SCADA \ ScadaServer \ Config \
    5- I search all the folders within the copy \ SCADA \ Scadaxxx \ config \ *. Xlm and edit the paths to match the Linux paths.
    6- I edit the ScadaCommSvcConfig.xml file located in the copy \ SCADA \ ScadaComm \ Config. so that the names of serial ports and other devices match Linux.
    7- I overwrite the SCADA Folder of the rasberryPI SD with the edited folder. usually located at: / opt / scada /
    8. Be careful with the name, in Windows it is SCADA in uppercase and in Linux it is scada in lowercase.

    I hope it helps.
    Regards.

    My English not good enough to explain but I can upload RS project from Windows to Linux over internet easily.

    If something doesn’t work, make screenshots of your deployment profile settings.

    Let’s see if I understand what you mean.
    You have a Linux PC running Rapidscada elsewhere.
    You do the project on a Windows PC.
    You want to transfer the project over the internet to your Linux PC.

    As far as I know, to do this you must use a third party remote file management program.

    Regards.

    Only for the initial installation and migration of driver libraries, for example. Edit the Instance name and key for the Agent. Otherwise, the project is transferred using the Agent from Windows to Linux without problems.

    WinSCP and SSH connection are enough to copy and install files.

    This may help someone or me in the future when looking to how to do this.

    Situation
    Rapid Scada installed and operational on Windows and a Rpi 4.
    Rapid Scada project built and tested on Windows and now looking to transfer to Rpi 4

    Complete what has been mentioned above
    “In Administrator create a new deployment profile for Raspberry. Upload all the configuration except Server settings (because they have different file paths).”

    The program then transferred across successfully and was running on the Rpi 4. I then went to the server and changed file paths from Windows Default to Linux defaults.

    I then went through Administrator on windows and changed all localhost settings to now look at the remote server eg. 192.168.1.10

    I can now see the data in line stats from the server in the administrator app.

    This is most likely a config issue but I had to re transfer all the plugins to the Rpi opt/scada/ folder. I did this by file transfer over vnc to the desktop and then copy paste from desktop to opt/scada/ folder.

    To activate the ChartPro plugin, I had to go chmod ug+rw WebSettings.xml in var/www/…. folder. If you have an issue activating it, it comes up with a fault on the web interface.

    Hope this helps someone in the future.

    Further..
    To enter registration codes into the program. I transferred the entire project inc. server option.
    I then loaded administrator application on Rpi, created new project and performed a download. Then went into each plugin and completed registration.

    Thanks for the useful notes. Some comments below.

    I then went through Administrator on windows and changed all localhost settings to now look at the remote server eg. 192.168.1.10

    Could you provide a screenshot of this to check?

    This is most likely a config issue but I had to re transfer all the plugins to the Rpi opt/scada/ folder

    DLLs of the modules should be presented on RPi. WinSCP is good for file transfer.

    To activate the ChartPro plugin, I had to go chmod ug+rw WebSettings.xml

    This is a known issue. We will fix it in the future.
