After Updating AMI, Nothing Works


I have a community version running on an EC2 instance, via AMI. I ssh’d onto the instance and executed the following commands:

sudo systemctl stop mapd_web_server
sudo systemctl stop mapd_server
sudo yum install mapd

Downloading packages:
Delta RPMs disabled because /usr/bin/applydeltarpm not installed.

sudo systemctl start mapd_server
sudo systemctl start mapd_web_server

However, now when I login, it fails to run any dashboards, find any data, or run any SQL queries. Help?


Hi @mayanklive1,

That’s a relatively old version of MapD, it would be best to launch a new instance of the latest AMI from the AWS Marketplace.



Hi Veda,

Understood, but we had all of our dashboards pre-created on that instance. Those teams were not counting on losing them. Is there a fix, or do we have to start over?


Hi @mayanklive1,

In case you want to preserve the data then best to upgrade the CUDA drivers and see if you are able to restart MapD. You can export the dashboards to a JSON file for importing it to another MapD instance.
