One of your new year's resolutions should be, to update your openITCOCKPIT .
Whenever a new version of openITCOCKPIT is available, you will see a notice at the package manager:

Long running database updates will always print a status information, like in the following example:

To reapply your manual changes, after the update is done, you should create a backup of the file

tmux sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
