Upgrading
=========
GNU social 1.1.x to GNU social 1.2.x
------------------------------------
If you are tracking the GNU social git repository, we currently recommend
using the "master" branch (or nightly if you want to use latest features)
and follow this procedure:
0. Backup your data. The StatusNet upgrade discussions below have some
guidelines to back up the database and files (mysqldump and rsync).
1. Stop your queue daemons (you can run this command even if you do not
use the queue daemons):
$ bash scripts/stopdaemons.sh
2. Run the command to fetch the latest sourcecode:
$ git pull
If you are not using git we recommend following the instructions below
for upgrading "StatusNet 1.1.x to GNU social 1.2.x" as they are similar.
3. 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/
4. Start your queue daemons again (you can run this command even if you
do not use the queue daemons):
$ bash scripts/startdaemons.sh
5. Report any issues at https://bugz.foocorp.net/ (tag GNU social)
