Upgrading to Bugzilla 3.0.2Edit

Created , updated

These notes were made while performing the upgrade from Bugzilla 3.0.1 to Bugzilla 3.0.2.

Upgrade procedure

  • Run sanitycheck.cgi from within the browser.
  • In the "Parameters" section set shutdownhtml to a useful value:
Currently closed for maintenance, please check back again soon.
  • Start a screen session in case we lose our connection:
screen
  • Back up the database:
mysqldump -u database_user -p database_name | bzip2 -c > bugzilla-3.0.1.sql.bz2
  • Back up the installed files:
cd path_to_bugzilla_installation
sudo tar -c -v . > ~/bugzilla-3.0.1.tar
gzip --verbose -9 ~/bugzilla-3.0.1.tar
  • (Optional): Upgrade installed CPAN modules for which newer versions are available. As I wanted this to be a conservative, minimally disruptive upgrade I skipped this step. For examples of what to do see "Bugzilla 2.22.2 to 3.0 upgrade notes".
  • Perform the actual update using CVS (CVS password is "anonymous"):
sudo -s
cvs login
cvs update -rBugzilla_Stable -dP

  • Watch for conflicts during update; fix as required.
  • Run checksetup.pl from the command line:
./checksetup.pl
  • Use my custom repair-bugzilla.sh to repair the ownership and permissions on the installed files.
  • In the "Parameters" section empty the shutdownhtml field.
  • Run sanitycheck.cgi from within the browser.
  • Update parameters.
  • Test the installation.
  • End root/screen sessions:
exit
exit

Future improvements

More of this process could be largely automated via a shell script.
