Upgrade 3.0.0 to 3.0.1 on ubuntu 6.06

Howdy All,

Sorry - Pressed wrong button,

Anyway - I was looking for a quick howto on this upgrade and did not see one. I did see some pointers that got me through it but thouth I would write this up for future users.

I am using ubuntu 6.06 and I am still a newbie at this. I am using the server with embeded-db to make my life easier. here is my complete upgrade process:

cd /tmp

wget http://www.jivesoftware.org/builds/wildfire/wildfire_3_0_1.tar.gz

gunzip wildfire_3_0_1.tar.gz

tar -xvf wildfire_3_0_1.tar

mkdir /bak

cp -r /opt/wildfire /bak/wildfire

cd /opt/wildfire/bin

./wildfire stop

cp -r /tmp/wildfire /opt/

cp /bak/wildfire/conf/wildfire.xml /opt/wildfire/conf/wildfire.xml

cp -r /bak/wildfire/embedded-db /opt/wildfire

cd /opt/wildfire/bin

./wildfire start

Just tested it out andf works fine - Hope this helps other newbies like me.


tar -xvzf wildfire___*.tar.gz

no need of gunzip

You should stop wildfire first and then make a backup, to be sure all cached info was written to a DB.

And you dont need to copy db again, because there is no embedded-db dir in tar.gz package.

Well, some what i have a similar upgrade steps list. Just i’‘m too lazy to write all commands (even with command completion ), so i use mc for all move/copy steps. And i’'m deleting everything in install dir except embedded-db, logs and conf. So when i copy only other dirs. Also i was leaving plugins dir and overwriting it. But last time i just reinstalled all plugins i need via Admin Console.
