Attach the configuration file when installing or updating. #49097
A lot of trouble information of INDI server / driver was confirmed on blog and SNS.

Most of them are summarized below.

1. Missing driver or park configuration file when installing application driver. → There is a problem with the operation of the park when the driver starts.

2. The user has not saved the driver settings. → The next time you start up, there will be no configuration file like 1, so a problem will occur.

3. When updating an app or driver, the previously used driver or park configuration file is not read or the configuration file is deleted. → The next time you start up, there will be no configuration file like 1, so a problem will occur.

In this way, starting the driver or releasing the park when there is no driver or park configuration file will cause malfunctions.

Please Include working configuration files when installing or updating servers and drivers.

and, if the user changes the configuration file, save it under a different name and change it so that it is loaded next time.

This solves trouble the park and many drivers .

(If you cannot prepare a working configuration file, provide a location where users can easily upload the configuration file.

Submit a configuration file for a device I own. (We ask other users to cooperate.)

Familiar people unknowingly avoid this problem, but it can cause serious trouble for beginners.
