Upgrading

StatusNet 1.1.1 to GNU social
-----------------------------
StatusNet 1.1.x to GNU social 1.2.x
-----------------------------------
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.
Beware there may be changes in minimum required version of PHP and the
modules used, so double-check the INSTALL file's requirements list.

and the modules required, so review the INSTALL file (php5-intl is a
newly added dependency for example).

* 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 'bash scripts/stopdaemons.sh' should do it.
Not everyone runs queue daemons, but the above command won't hurt.
To do a backup of the database, you can use a variant of this command
(you will be interactively prompted for the db user's password):
$ mysqldump -u dbuser -p dbname > social-backup.sql
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:

avatar/*
background/*

local/*
.htaccess
config.php
1. Unpack your GNU social code to a fresh directory. You can do this
by cloning our git repository:
$ git clone https://gitorious.org/social/mainline.git gnusocial
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: 'bash scripts/startdaemons.sh'
6. Report any issues at https://bugz.foocorp.net/ (tag GNU social)

Legacy StatusNet instructions
-----------------------------
This command will point you in the right direction on how to do it:
$ rsync -avP statusnet/{.htaccess,avatar,background,file,local,config.php} gnusocial/
These instructions are here for historical and perhaps informational
purposes.
3. Replace your old StatusNet directory with the new GNU social
directory in your webserver root.
If you've been using StatusNet 1.0 or lower, or if you've
been tracking the "git" version of the software, you will probably
want to upgrade and keep your existing data. Try these step-by-step
instructions; read to the end first before trying them.
4. Run the upgrade script: 'php scripts/upgrade.php'
The upgrade script will likely take a long time because it will
upgrade the tables to another character encoding and make other
automated upgrades. Make sure it ends without errors. If you get
errors, create a new task on https://bugz.foocorp.net/
0. Download StatusNet and set up all the prerequisites as if you were
doing a new install.
1. Make backups of both your database and your Web directory. UNDER NO
CIRCUMSTANCES should you try to do an upgrade without a known-good
backup. You have been warned.
2. Shut down Web access to your site, either by turning off your Web
server or by redirecting all pages to a "sorry, under maintenance"
page.
3. Shut down XMPP access to your site, typically by shutting down the
xmppdaemon.php process and all other daemons that you're running.
If you've got "monit" or "cron" automatically restarting your
daemons, make sure to turn that off, too.
4. Shut down SMS and email access to your site. The easy way to do
this is to comment out the line piping incoming email to your
maildaemon.php file, and running something like "newaliases".
5. Once all writing processes to your site are turned off, make a
final backup of the Web directory and database.
6. Move your StatusNet directory to a backup spot, like "statusnet.bak".
7. Unpack your StatusNet 1.1.1 tarball and move it to "statusnet" or
wherever your code used to be.
8. Copy the config.php file and the contents of the avatar/, background/,
file/, and local/ subdirectories from your old directory to your new
directory.
9. Copy htaccess.sample to .htaccess in the new directory. Change the
RewriteBase to use the correct path.
10. Upgrade the database.
5. Start your queue daemons: 'bash scripts/startdaemons.sh'
NOTE: this step is destructive and cannot be
reversed. YOU CAN EASILY DESTROY YOUR SITE WITH THIS STEP. Don't
do it without a known-good backup!
In your new StatusNet 1.1.1 directory and AFTER YOU MAKE A
BACKUP run the upgrade.php script like this:
php ./scripts/upgrade.php
11. Use mysql or psql client to log into your database and make sure that
the notice, user, profile, subscription etc. tables are non-empty.
12. Turn back on the Web server, and check that things still work.
13. Turn back on XMPP bots and email maildaemon.
NOTE: the 1.0.0 version of StatusNet changed the URLs for all admin
panels from /admin/* to /panel/*. This now allows the (popular)
username 'admin', but blocks the considerably less popular username
'panel'. If you have an existing user named 'panel', you should rename
them before upgrading.
6. Report any issues at https://bugz.foocorp.net/ (tag GNU social)
