Upgrade using Update Installers

An "update installer" contains the ]project-open[ code necessary for minor updates (for example: from V4.0.4 to V4.0.5).

The update installer contains only the bare product code. So you need to install ]project-open[ first using one of the operating specific installers (Windows, VMware with CentOS, Amazon AWS, Ubuntu or Debian, ...).

 

Upgrade Installers

Upgrade installers are files with the structure

  • project-open-Update-X.Y.Z.V.W.tgz

that you can find on our SourceForge download zone in the folder

  • http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/project-open/files/project-open/VX.Y/

 

Windows Update

  • Please check for the "packages" folder of your "projop" ]po[ server.
    It is usually located in C:/project-open/servers/projop/.
  • Perform a backup of your ]po[ database.
  • Stop the ]po[ server.
  • Rename the old "packages" folder to "packages.x.y.z" according to the old version.
  • Unpack the project-open-Update-X.Y.Z.V.W.tgz file using 7-Zip or a similar compression utility in the folder C:/project-open/servers/projop/
  • Check for permissions - Please make sure that the new "packages" folder has the same owner and the same permissions as the old one.
  • Delete your old log files at C:/project-open/servers/projop/log/*.*
  • Restart your ]po[ server.
  • Check the log file C:/project-open/servers/projop/log/error.log in case something goes wrong.

 

Linux Update

  • Please check for the "packages" folder of your "projop" ]po[ server.
    It is usually located in /web/projop/.
  • Rename the old "packages" folder to "packages.x.y.z" according to the old version.
  • Unpack the update installer using "tar xzf project-open-Update-X.Y.Z.V.W.tgz".
  • Check for permissions - Please make sure that the new "packages" folder has the same owner and the same permissions as the old one.
  • Delete your old log files at /web/projop/log/*.*
  • Restart your ]po[ server.
  • Check the log file /web/projop/log/error.log in case something goes wrong.

 

Running Upgrade Scripts

The "Home" page of your ]po[ server will probably show a new portlet asking you to run a number of upgrade scripts.

"Upgrade scripts" are small pieces of SQL that are used to update the data-model in the database to the new version.

Just follow the commands, ]po[ "knows" in which order to run these upgrade scripts.
