    Command to Add Sharing Key After RPi Installation

    I had to reinstall FR24 on top of FA on my RPi but in filling out form data I skipped by the sharing key. The system has given me a third feeder CYXY4. I want the feed to resume on CYXY2.

    If it is the sharing key that caused this new feeder ID to be created, is there a way to SUDO in the sharing key.

    Or, how do I redirect the feed to CYXY2? My Pi hardware, USB ports and local IP have not changed.

    Email them. Skipping entering the key makes a new one (from memory it says if you have one enter it..) which then isn't verified against the email

    I re-installed the FR24 package right on top of the first installation, this time getting the sharing key entered. Feeder CYXY2 is now showing ONLINE and CYXY4 is OFFLINE.

    PS:
    Just had a plane come over and all is well. FR24 is getting fed from CYXY2 & CYXY3.

    Still let them know to delete the unused. If it added to your acct it will cause issues if/when they impliment 'feeder down' alerts
    But also makes an un-necessary indication of more feeders in an area than there is (while reserving it to not be used)

    (1) Give folloing command
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/fr24feed.ini
    (2) Above command will open file "fr24feed.ini" which will have content shown below. in line fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxx", replace the current key (shown here as xxxxxxxxxxxx) by the key you want.

    Code:
    receiver="beast-tcp"
    host="127.0.0.1:30005"
    fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxx"
    
    bs="no"
    raw="no"
    logmode="1"
    windowmode="0"
    mpx="no"
    mlat="yes"
    mlat-without-gps="yes"
    (3) Save file (Ctrl+o) and close file (Ctrl+x)

    (4) Restart fr24feed
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart fr24feed
    (5) Send email to support to delete the unwanted Station from your account.
