Aegir Upgrade Instructions

This document describes briefly how to upgrade an existing Aegir installation

The document is laid out in the following sections:

  • Conventions and tips
  • Upgrade script
  • Setting environment variables
  • Generic upgrade instructions
    • Upgrading the backend
    • Upgrading the frontend
  • Version-specific upgrade notes (read these before running anything else!)

Generic upgrade instructions

We aim to create a generic upgrade process that will be consistent across versions. This section describes this process. However, there are version-specific upgrade instructions that may be more relevant to your installation in the next section. You should check the version-specific instructions to ensure you have covered off the requirements necessary for successfully completing these version-generic steps.

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
