Re-installing Lora Gateway Bridge (Multitech Conduit)


I retrieved a mutlitech conduit (AEP) with old version of LoRa Gateway Bridge (rev 2.2), and I didn’t find the configuration file in the /var/config/lora-gateway-bridge directory (for the mqtt instance).

So I don’t know how to set the couple username-password to be compliant with my MQTT broker?

Currently I installed LoRa server 0.26.0 and and LoRa appserver 0.20.0 all work fine ;).

if possible plz could you tell me where can I find the mqtt config file with the lora gateway bridge rev 2.2 in my mtcdt ?

And if I have to upgrade with the lora gateway bridge rev 2.4 how can I remove properly the old revision???

Thank you for your help.

Please see It contains all the instructions for installing the LoRa Gateway Bridge on the Conduit.

Ok thank you for your reply but there is no risk of corruption if I reinstall the lora-gateway-bridge 2.4 over the previous configuration (2.2).

Actually the lora server works like this, that is to say lora server 0.26.0, lora app server 0.20.0 and lora-gateway-bridge 2.2.

If someone is looking for where he can write MQTT_server,username and password in rev 2.2 of LGB it’s here:


This is valid for AEP multitech conduit :wink:

I would recommend removing the old one (setup manually) before installing the new one (using the .ipk file).

Hello @brocaar, I upgraded my lora-gateway-bridge from V2.4 to V3.0 it works but the old commands which was linked with the lora-gateway-bridge seems to have disappeared.

Here my configuration:
Loraserver ==> V.2.8.2
Lora-app-server ==> V.2.6.1
Lora-geo-server ==> V.2.0.1
Lora-gateway-bridge (hosted multitech gw) ==> V.3.0.1 ( before V.2.4.0)

My process:
I renamed the old lora-gateway-bridge.toml to old-lora-gateway-bridge.toml.
I removed [lora-gateway-bridge_2.4.0-r1.0_arm926ejste.ipk] was available in my home directory.

Then I followed your installation guide

opkg install lora-gateway-bridge_3.0.1-r1_arm926ejste.ipk

after that a new lora-gateway-bridge has been created but comparing with the template available here it was missing a lot of section.

I wanted to regenerate a new one with this command lora-gateway-bridge configfile > lora-gateway-bridge.toml but he command lora-gateway-bridge was not found!

So I copied the template and pasted it in my lora-gateway-bridge.toml then I did the modification according my setup.

I started the lora-gateway-bridge ==> /etc/init.d/lora-gateway-bridge start

The command available are only [start-stop-restart]

To finish I modified the loraserver.toml as specified in the release note.

from the loraserver log I can see the modification of mosquitto topic ‘…/events/stats/…’ ‘…events/up/…’ so on…

Do you tell me if this behavior is the one expected?
What is wrong in my process?

Thank you.

Hi @julien ,

I’m facing the same issue but with the RAK831 gateway with Raspberry Pi3.

After some days of frustation I decided to install again the operative system of the RPi3 and to download again the packet forwarder program and the lora-gateway-bridge, BUT when I install it from zero it also happens to me. The “lora-gateway-bridge.toml” is just a part of the template which is in the documentation.

This makes me think that it could be a problem of the packet that we download from the repository.

Any idea/solution @brocaar ?

Kind regards!
Pablo Romero.


if it’s confirmed I will open an issue on github.
