[xwiki-users] Upgrading XWiki Enterprise From 1.2.2 to 1.6.1

2008-11-25 Thread Chad Gorshing

Greetings-

I am need to upgrade an installation of XWiki from 1.2.2 to the latest 
(currently 1.6.1) and I am trying to put together an attack plan.  Should I 
attempt an upgrade all the way to 1.6.1 in one fell swoop or should I upgrade 
to 1.3.2 - 1.4.1 ...etc.  Do I need to upgrade the XAR for every release or 
just once?

I am using hsqldb as my database, but after getting everything upgraded 
correctly, I will be moving the database to MySQL.

I have searched the archives but I haven't found anything more recent and also 
dealing with wide range of upgrading I need to do.

Regards

You should go directly to 1.6.1. Only the most recent XAR must be 
imported, but take care not to override important things (groups, users, 
the main page).

2008-11-25 Thread BSayatovic
I recently upgraded from a 1.1 milestone to 1.6.0 in one fell swoop.

I did an export from my old installation, installed the new version in a
separate location, tweaked the out-of-the-box config (I kept notes on what
I customized last time so I could re-do it) and then did a selective
import.

I did have some troubles.  My exported XAR was huge and the 1.6.0 VM kept
running out of heap on import.  I ended up excluding history (*sniff*) and
also manually deleting unwanted items from the XAR, as well as increasing
the heap size.

But in the end, it worked!

Regards,
Brian.
