Is there an official page describing the upgrade process from 6.0.5 still in development and testing mode for sites but would be nice to not have to start from scratch.

This applies to not only the base system but also Liferay issued portlets.

I can only find a posting about release 5.x upgrades. I would expect the release process to include a proper upgrade document.

Thanks

hi,

I have een update problem.
steps i did:
- download new tomcat liferay 6.0.6 version.
- set portal-ext.properties to use mysql db.
- import mysql export from liferay 6.0.5 into db
- copy data folder from 6.0.5
- run startup.bat

after updating the db tables it stops ..

testing it on a development pc running windows xp.

If i startup with a clean database version 6.0.6 everything works fine.

any clues ?

grz,gerald




Did you find a solution? I have the same problem, but on Oracle...

There should be an error message after updating the table if it stops.

Just to be sure, are you updating from 6.0.5 to 6.0.6?

Right i will post my catalina.out

This is an openBSD 4.8 machine with mysql 5.1 DB. Its one of the nodes from cluster just dropped in a current live DB into dev machine to see if it would upgrade successfully but its didnt work. Fails after the schema changes just like you said.


Thanks

It seems you have a problem with a lucene index. Hve you got permissions on that machine to create "home/liferay/data/lucene/10131" directory? Did you configured ok directory for lucene?

The machine has an external nfs share which the data folder resides in. So is it trying to create something in the nfs? I thought it was just schema changes?

Yep, Liferay needs to create indexes (for example, to index users and so on..). You can change it to point to a local directory for your local test environment if you want (lucene.dir property in portal-ext.properties).

BTW, it is not a good practice to have a shared index (if you have several nodes that access it, could cause problems). For example, in our environment we have a local index directory for each node, and indexes are shared across cluster thanks to cluster.link.enabled=true and lucene.replicate.write=true

Found out what the issue was. it didn't like the nfs share. I just unmounted the shared drive and went back to local data store then updated and then remounted the NFS.

BTW, it is not a good practice to have a shared index


What would you advise using so that there are no problems with the NFS. Can I still use a nfs share for storing without running into problems. I am using solr to index using the plugin from site.

I personally thought most Liferay Solr users were using database instead of a file system.

Is there any reason not to be using a file system. Would I gain anything from using the database to store everything?

The reason I opted for solr was the just for searching through docs etc its very very good. it blows lucene out the water anyway.

Yep I totally agree, I thought using Solr was to avoid concurrent access to one place (for example, a directory in file system).

File sharing works most of the time but when there are many concurrent writes, we found some errors in the log.

I have found that the search that is built in is very poor compared to solr. When searching for doc's etc it can come back with nothing even though i know there is a doc in there but the same search with the solr plugin enabled returned results.

hey just follow this steps i think this will help u

First create an empty database for new version
then just use migrate tool to migrate 6.5 database to new datadase
then copy the data folder in to your new version files (Replace the data folder)
then go to portal-ext.properties and map the new database
and then simply start the new one .....................

What's the error message?

You shouldn't have done that anyways. If you needed to install Liferay on a new server, you should have copied your 6.0.5 database and follow the procedure to upgrade to 6.0.6. Liferay keeps version number in the database to check if there is a need to upgrade.

UPDATE RELEASE_ SET BUILDNUMBER = 6006;

Following are also the difference between 6.0.5 and 6.0.6
alter table JournalArticleResource add uuid_ VARCHAR(75) null;

create table SocialEquityGroupSetting (
equityGroupSettingId LONG not null primary key,
groupId LONG,
companyId LONG,
classNameId LONG,
type_ INTEGER,
enabled BOOLEAN
);

I'm late to the game, but there are a few thoughts that I want to add to the discussion.

As far as I expect, SOLR and Lucene shouldn't differ that much in result- after all SOLR is built on Lucene and is providing "just" a client/server interface to this.

However, you need to make sure that your lucene index is current - if you're running a cluster and didn't configure lucene for this, you'll most likely end up with half the content indexed on each machine (if you have a cluster of two machines). This might explain your results.

Also, if your NFS connection breaks and you add documents, you need to reindex.

And if you're running as root (at least some times) you might run into the NFS root squash issue (was this the name? "root" might translate to "nobody" on nfs shares), where you can't write anything at all to the file system. You can have the same locally when you once ran as root and now as an unprivileged user while all the files still are owned by root.

If you can't find documents that you know are there with Lucene, rebuilding the index will probably help. If this happens frequently you might want to check your setup. SOLR is one answer to this, but it's not required. See the clustering section in the administration guide for a discussion of the possibilities.
