Upgrading/Data Version 9

From Dreamwidth Notes
Jump to: navigation, search

These instructions are for upgrading your database to data version 9. This update is for performance improvements so that icons can be renamed.

The first step is to upgrade to the lastest code as described in Updating the Dreamwidth code, especially:

cd $LJHOME
bin/cvsreport.pl -update
# only sync changes from the CVS to the live code
bin/cvsreport.pl -sync -cvsonly
bin/cvsreport.pl -sync -cvsonly
# order of commands is important
$LJHOME/bin/upgrading/update-db.pl -r -p --innodb
$LJHOME/bin/upgrading/update-db.pl -r --cluster=all --innodb
$LJHOME/bin/upgrading/texttool.pl load

It's also recommended that you delete files that don't exist in the code anymore from $LJHOME:

cd $LJHOME
for i in $(bin/cvsreport.pl -n -1); do 
   echo "Removing $i" && rm $i; 
done

Then, you will want to run this program:

perl $LJHOME/bin/upgrading/d8d9-userpicrename.pl

Here's an example of the help output and usage output of the script:

[email protected]:~$ ~/bin/upgrading/d8d9-userpicrename.pl --help
