Welcome to the final article in our ESP32 firmware and OTA update management series. Today, we’ll explore using an FTP client to update the firmware and filesystem on an ESP32 device. Join us as we delve into this last technique, equipping you with valuable insights for managing updates on your ESP32 projects.
Tagged: File System
In computing, file system or filesystem (often abbreviated to fs) is a method and data structure that the operating system uses to control how data is stored and retrieved.
In this article, we explore a non-standard but effective method for updating ESP32 firmware and filesystem using an SD card. We’ll discuss the advantages, disadvantages, and provide a step-by-step guide for implementing this technique, building on knowledge from previous articles in our firmware management series.
In this article, we will explore how to perform OTA updates on the ESP32 using a web browser and HTTPS protocol with a self-signed certificate. HTTPS provides a secure way to transfer data over the internet and is essential for any OTA update process that involves sensitive information. A self-signed certificate can be used to provide encryption and authentication without the need for a third-party certificate authority, making it a cost-effective solution for small-scale projects. By the end of this article, you will have a working OTA update process for your ESP32 project that uses HTTPS protocol and a self-signed certificate.
In this article series, we will explore how to perform an OTA update on the ESP32 microcontroller using a web browser with and without basic authentication. We will cover firmware update, filesystem update, and authentication, providing practical examples and code snippets along the way.
One of the most important features of the ESP32 is the ability to perform over-the-air (OTA) updates, which allows developers to remotely update the firmware of the device without the need for physical access.
In this article, we will explore how to perform an OTA update on an ESP32 using the Arduino IDE. We will cover the entire process, including updating the filesystem and firmware, as well as securing the OTA update with a password.
The ESP32 boasts a crucial capability that streamlines the sharing of firmware, which most manufacturers widely utilize. This capability involves creating a pre-compiled binary file containing the sketch portion (or filesystem). In this article, we will create a binary file for the filesystem and proceed to flash the ESP32 using the Espressif Download Tool.
In this series of article about firmware and how to update It, I’d like to add a series of alternative methods of updating that are very useful for me.
In this article, we will learn how to add an FTP server to our device and use It to upload firmware and filesystem updates.
