SOLVED Kimai local.yaml
hi guys! first time posting
i am having trouble with the kimai rounding options:
technically, if i input 15 for beginn, end and duration, i should be able to round up my times as i need them (15 minute step). while searching for the location of the local.yaml file via SSH on my DO installation, i found it inside the "appsdata" folder for the kimai app, as if it were there specially for easy access. i made the changes but its not working and i am not sure what i am doing wrong, or if the file just doesnt get loaded at all and serves some other purpose.
later, i also used the cloudron terminal for kimai and found the loca.yaml in the location the kimai docs said it would be, and it had updated the changes.
again, i am not sure if my settings are wrong or if the file is not getting loaded. any help is appreciated!
my settings, even though i know this is too kimai specific:
Actually what you have explained is correct and should work. The
/app/data/local.yamlis exactly there for this use-case. Have you restarted the app after applying the changes, in order to have the app assets rebuilt?
@squareclouds I noticed you said
appsdata. Instead of editing files directly on the server, use the Web Terminal in the Debug view of the app. Then go to
/app/data(only this data is persisted and part of a backup. all other data in a container is transient). After editing, you can then click on the Restart button at the top of the Terminal.
yes, i actually restarted everything, app, couldron and then even the digitalocean droplet, but no changes i will try it tomorrow again and report back
i managed to make the changes, i had two mistakes:
i had to clear the kimai cache via terminal (it is in the kimai docs)
when trying to clear, so the effects take place, i got an error. apparently you cannot use tabs as indentation, so my local.yaml was not readable anyway
after using spaces and clearing successfully the cache, every worked
thanks for the help!
