:warning: Due to significant structural changes in the database, this version may require several manual actions to migrate from alpha 41 to 55 (see Can't access public page and others (seems related to activitypub module) (#115) · Issues · Podlibre / Castopod Host · GitLab)
It is advisable to do a new installation.

I have the problem @ericg adresses in the post above. I upgraded to version
1.0.0-67~ynh1 and my public page for castopod is now displaying the “whoops hit a snag” page.

In the solution listed here:

Yassin Doghri’s answer requires a backup of the castopod instance (which I have made) and also a backup of the RSS file, and Database.

How do I find the RSS file and Database in order to back them up after I ssh into my server?

I looked under /etc/yunohost/apps & I can’t seem to find the correct location of the RSS file or Database. Can someone help point me in the right direction, please?

Hi, i m trying to set up an external drive as main storage for castopod.
I tried with mounting hdd to “/var/www/castopod/public/media” but didn’t works for me.

Anyone did this before?
