upgrade redmine using svn
19 APRIL 2011 after a upgrade, i got 500 error on user login. There was no easy solution for this. From the site, i found svn upgrade is for experienced users. So i switched to stable release. Now onwards, only install stable (tar.gz) redmine to avoid further problems.
cd /home/redmine mysqldump redmine > /backup/redmine_$(date +%m%d%Y%H).sql svn update rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production rake db:migrate:upgrade_plugin_migrations RAILS_ENV=production rake db:migrate_plugins RAILS_ENV=production rake tmp:cache:clear rake tmp:sessions:clear /home/redmine/restart.sh
After upgrade go to "Admin -> Roles & permissions" to check/set permissions for the new features, if any.
