ADSB Receiver Project Cleanup/Convert to FA

I have a Pi3B+ and 2 rtf-sdr dongles so I can run both 1090 and 978…

Originally installed both dump1090 and dump978 via the ADSB Receiver Project script, and over time have replaced 1090-mutability that it installs with 1090-fa (did this manually by removing package and installing new one).

The ADSB receiver project no longer exists… I can’t find how dump9789 is actually running (won’t list as a service running, etc.) so I can uninstall and install dump978-fa (which is installed and running, but if I look on the “map” for 978 it still displays/links to the mutability version).

Love the maps and stats/graphs that Joe’s scripts installed… any suggestions on cleaning this up, should I wipe the Pi and start over (would need to preserve my FlightAware hash)? Any help is appreciated.

The ID can be added at the install time. Copy/paste the ID number from your receiver web page:
