rc2 to rc3, database changes?

posts: 41 Germany


just upgraded from 1.9rc2 to 1.9rc3, overided all the files and run tiki-install.php but choose "leave the db as it is" because I not found a script which upgrades DB changes from rc2 to rc3.

Everything works fine and all the existing data is there. mrgreen

But I am interesting if there are any DB changes from rc2 to rc3??? question

Hopefully somebody knows this...

bis thanks from Hamburg/Germany.

There are (at least fixes), you need to run 1.8to1.9 script. It doesn't hurt to run it multiple times. If you would use a development version (CVS), you would follow the progressive evolution simply by running that script regularly.

So there are changes in the DB from 1.9rc2 to 1.9rc3 which are stored in the 1.8 to 1.9 script???? question

When I run the script my stored data won't get lost?

usually no, but its a risk you take when running 1.9 development code. After rc4/rc5 1.9 will be released as final product, which means some stability and better upgrades

Hi Damian,

I know, but also the rc2 of 1.9 is running smooth for my needs.


Tikiwiki is sooooo cool! mrgreenwinkcool

Before I use it for production it will be testet on a test server for several weeks and in rc3 I can see as Admin the tracker values.

Thanks, now I know that there aren't any DB changes from 1.9rc2 to rc3... I can now go on testing.

cu, Pete

If you really want to know, do a file compare of the 1.8to1.9 script in rc2 and rc3.
I use Total Commander's built-in file compare for that.

And indeed, I only see a few bug fixes and some extra permissions for features that you perhaps don't use.
