Upgrade From 2.2.1 to 2.2.2
This page provides information on how to upgrade from VCL 2.2.1 to VCL 2.2.2. Please note it only applies for the upgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2, this may or may not work for other versions.
The basic steps that will be performed
- Download and Extract 2.2.2 code
- Shutdown httpd service
- Create backup of vcl database
- Create backup of web code
- Upgrade web code
- Restart httpd service
Detailed steps for upgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2
- follow instructions on the VCL download page to download and verify apache-VCL-2.2.2.tar.bz2 and put in in /root
extract VCL 2.2.2 code
tar xjf apache-VCL-2.2.2.tar.bz2
Shutdown the httpd service
service httpd stop or /etc/init.d/httpd stop
We will create a backup of the vcl database. This will provide a restore point if necessary. There are no updates to the database in this upgrade, but it is still a good idea to have a backup.
mysqldump vcl > ~/vcl-pre2.2.2-upgrade.sql
Backup the web code. This step will move the 2.2.1 web directory out of the way so we can copy in the new web code base. These instructions assume that you installed the vcl web code at /var/www/html/vcl. If you installed it elsewhere, replace /var/www/html/vcl with your vcl web root.
cd /var/www/html mv vcl ~/vcl_2.2.1_web
Copy the new code in place
cd /root/apache-VCL-2.2.2 cp -r web /var/www/html/vcl
Copy your 2.2.1 config files
cd ~/vcl_2.2.1_web/.ht-inc cp conf.php secrets.php pubkey.pem keys.pem /var/www/html/vcl/.ht-inc
Make the maintenance directory writable by the web server user. Normally this is the apache user. If using a different user, change the below command accordingly.
chown apache /var/www/html/vcl/.ht-inc/maintenance
Restart httpd service
:::BashLexer service httpd start or /etc/init.d/httpd start
Make some test reservations and watch the vcld.log to verify everything is working correctly.
:::BashLexer tail -f /var/log/vcld.log
