There is a folder where Holoscape stores config files, and when I see that error, if I don’t have anything special that I’ve done in Holoscape and just have throwaway test data, then I just clear that folder.
Just open this folder on your computer: /Users/Hubject/Library/Application Support/Holoscape-default
and delete everything in it. Then restart Holoscape. I just had to do it today, and I’m on a mac, and it worked for me.
Hi @Connoropolous, Thanks foor quick reply.
I’ve deleted the files …
… and Holoscape start normally now
Trying to install “Communities” hApps, but it ask for a Passphrase ! What Am I supossed to do at this stage ?
Yeah I added an issue to holoscape github for that too. Its confusing. It is actually asking for you to create a password, the first time it asks that. You can just leave it empty then you won’t forget it. Just click through with it left empty.
If I create some content with holo.txt I do made a “backup” ? (or perhaps that “backup” does not make sense in a fully distributed context ?
Hmm… I haven’t checked out that app, but I’m guessing its just notetaking?
I would recommend taking some kind of approach to backing up what you might put in there yeah, because things with Holochain / Holoscape are still settling in terms of stability
Yes, I can understand that things are not very stable at this development stage, but (sorry, I’m not very technically skilled) how can I do a backup of all data from all hApps ?
I.e which directory to copy (I suppose) ?
No problem, of course.
(since it was mentioned earlier in the thread)
this would be the directory: /Users/Hubject/Library/Application Support/Holoscape-default
I could see there is 2 directories in “/Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/”
I suppose Holoscape-defaut is used when you start Holoscape for the very 1st time …
… and holoscape is used to store the data you create with hApps
So, I suppose (in order to make a backup ) that you need tou copy “/Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/holoscape”
I am rigth ?
