16.2 Set up

Requests for new machine ID’s is currently handled manually. To request a machine ID contact Rob Kooper . In the examples below this ID is referred to as ‘my siteid’.

To setup the database to use this ID you need to call load.bety in ‘CREATE’ mode (replacing with the ID if your site)

sudo -u postgres {$PECAN}/scripts/load.bety.sh -c -u -m <my siteid> 

WARNING: At the moment running CREATE deletes all current records in the database. If you are running from the VM this includes both all runs you have done and all information that the database is prepopulated with (e.g. input and model records). Remote records can be fetched (see below), but local records will be lost (we’re working on improving this!)
