Upgrading Your Installation

How to know if you need a upgrade

At some point you might log into your Convention Master console to discover a screen that tells you that there are updates available.


How to install updates

  1. Log into the shell (command line) of your server.
  2. Make a backup of your database! - To do this you can use the command "mysqldump -uusername -p database_name > filename.sql" replacing the "userame" with your valid username, and "database_name" with your database name.
  3. Move into the covention master folder
  4. Type the Subversion Update Command  - "svn up"
  5. Log into the convention master console to complete the upgrade.  (User must have the "Perform DB and System Upgrades" Permission)
  6. Verify that the upgrades all read "SUCCESS"
