StatusNet 1.1.1 to GNU social
We cannot support migrating from any other version of StatusNet than
1.1.1. If you are running a StatusNet version lower than this, please
follow the upgrade procedures for each respective StatusNet version.
You are now running StatusNet 1.1.1 and want to migrate to GNU social.
Before you begin: Make backups. Always make backups. Of your entire
directory structure and the database too. All tables. All data. Alles.
0. Stop your queue daemons 'php scripts/stopdaemon.php' should do it.
Not everyone runs queue daemons, but the above command won't hurt.
1. Unpack your GNU social code to a fresh directory.
2. Synchronize your local files to the GNU social directory. These
will be the local files such as avatars, config and files:
3. Replace your old StatusNet directory with the new GNU social
directory in your webserver root.
4. Run the upgrade script: 'php scripts/upgrade.php'
5. Start your queue daemons: 'php scripts/startdaemons.php'
6. Report any issues at https://gitorious.org/statusnet/gnu-social/

UTF-8 Database
If you are upgrading from a 0.8.x or 0.9.x version, you can safely
skip this section.
StatusNet 0.7.4 introduced a fix for some incorrectly-stored
international characters ("UTF-8"). This fix is not
backwards-compatible; installations from before 0.7.4 will show
non-ASCII characters of old notices incorrectly. This section explains
what to do.
0. You can disable the new behaviour by setting the 'db''utf8' config
option to "false". You should only do this until you're ready to
convert your DB to the new format.
1. When you're ready to convert, you can run the fixup_utf8.php script
in the scripts/ subdirectory. If you've had the "new behaviour"
enabled (probably a good idea), you can give the ID of the first
"new" notice as a parameter, and only notices before that one will
be converted. Notices are converted in reverse chronological order,
so the most recent (and visible) ones will be converted first. The
script should work whether or not you have the 'db''utf8' config
option enabled.
2. When you're ready, set $config['db']['utf8'] to true, so that
new notices will be stored correctly.
Older versions
IMPORTANT NOTE: StatusNet 0.7.4 introduced a fix for some
incorrectly-stored international characters ("UTF-8"). For new
installations, it will now store non-ASCII characters correctly.
However, older installations will have the incorrect storage, and will
consequently show up "wrong" in browsers. See below for how to deal
with this situation.
NOTE: the database definition file, laconica.ini, has been renamed to
statusnet.ini (since this is the recommended database name). If you
have a line in your config.php pointing to the old name, you'll need
to update it.
