I just became a new admin on a server (ubuntu-server virtual machine) that host redmine on apache2 and subversion in my company.
- I discovered that the OS is Ubuntu Raring 13.04 that is out of date from January 2014!
- I updated the
source.listto replace xx.ubuntu.com by
old-releases.ubuntu.com, then I made update && upgrade.
- So I made
The script force remove the Redmine package.
I cloned the machine and ran two dist-upgrade successively on the cloned machine so I upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10 and then from 13.10 to 14.04 Trusty LTS and I choose to stay on the LTS.
The problem now is to restore redmine on the upgraded system. How to do that ? Two difficulties are added to this work because:
- ubuntu raring run postgresql-9.1, but trusty run 9.3. So the redmine db is on a 9.1 pg cluster.
- redmine itself was an old version and trusty repos host redmine-2.4.2-1
What is the key points to perform the restoration of the complete application configuration and datas ?
