To avoid this, or if you are on a large site that requires this level of precision, you can use the option --force to update all users at once. Another issue can arise if you require zodbot to update users on a regular schedule. If you use a tool like rsync to sync users between servers, the rsync process will block zodbot from updating users during this time, causing users to update at a slower pace than they should. To avoid this, you can change the rsync process to sync users at a different time, or you can use the option --force to force the rsync process to sync users at a faster rate.

zodbot installation on CentOS 7

Please note that zodbot cannot be installed on CentOS 7. It is impossible to install zodbot on CentOS 7 because it requires the EPEL repository.

How to Use zodbot zodbot is a command-line utility to update users on a server. To use it, you must first install it into the system using pip.

sudo pip install zodbot
Then run it with the following commands:

zodbot --force -u

Getting Started

To get started, follow the steps below:

1. Create an update script that will run on your server at scheduled intervals and update all users in one go.
2. Edit the script to include -force for any command that needs it or add a command or option to the script which you want zodbot to run before updating each user.
3. Add the new updatescript to your crontab or scheduler (here is a tutorial if you need help).
4. Optionally, create a cron job with zodbot /etc/zodbot.d/updateusers --force so that you don't have to do this manually every time.

Using the --force option to update users

To update users with the --force option, you can either manually run zodbot or update all users at once by running the following command:

zodbot --force
The --force option is on a per-site basis, so if you have multiple website installs, you'll need to use it for each website.
