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

Detailed steps for upgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2

  1. follow instructions on the VCL download page to download and verify apache-VCL-2.2.2.tar.bz2 and put in in /root

  2. extract VCL 2.2.2 code

    tar xjf apache-VCL-2.2.2.tar.bz2
  3. Shutdown the httpd service

    service httpd stop or /etc/init.d/httpd stop
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Copy the new code in place

    cd /root/apache-VCL-2.2.2
    cp -r web /var/www/html/vcl
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Restart httpd service

    service httpd start or /etc/init.d/httpd start
  10. Make some test reservations and watch the vcld.log to verify everything is working correctly.

    tail -f /var/log/vcld.log
