VeraLite UI5: Cannot restore server backup

My VeraLite, UI5, seems to have crapped on it’s self and lost almost all of the devices. The ones left do work.

I have been making daily backups so I went back to them and tried to restore one of them but I keep getting “Failed to unpack the backup” errors.

I’ve gone to my oldest backup which was Feb 19 when everything was working and even it fails.

Just to make sure I manually unpacked the tgz file to see if it’s good and it unpacks cleanly.

I’m running on a Mac but this happens on both Safari and Firefox browsers.

Do I need to do a factory reset first?

Does anyone have any ideas?

This is a a Mac specific thing. Try untarring and then Tar and compress it back, Then it will probably work.

Or use a Windows or Linux machine to restore.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

That fixed the problem and everything seems to be restored. I’ll have to watch it for a day to see if everything seems to be working.
