    4 A Trac environment sometimes needs to be upgraded before it can be used with a new version of Trac. This document describes the steps necessary to upgrade an environment. 
     4A [TracEnvironment Trac environment] needs to be upgraded before it can be used with Trac 0.11. This document describes the steps necessary to upgrade an environment. 
    55 
    6  '''Note''': ''Environment upgrades are not necessary for minor version releases unless otherwise noted. For example, there's no need to upgrade a Trac environment created with (or upgraded) 0.8.0 when installing 0.8.4 (or any other 0.8.x release).'' 
     6Environment upgrades are not necessary for minor version releases unless otherwise noted.

    1010Typically, there are four steps involved in upgrading to a newer version of Trac: 
     
    1212=== Update the Trac Code === 
    1313 
    14 Get the new version of Trac, either by downloading an offical release package or by checking it out from the [http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/wiki/SubversionRepository Subversion repository]. 
     14Get the new version as described in TracInstall, or your operating system specific procedure. 
    1515 
    16 If you're doing a major version upgrade (such as from 0.8 to 0.9), it is ''highly'' recommended that you first remove the existing Trac code. To do this, you need to delete the `trac` directory from the Python `lib/site-packages` directory. You may also want to remove the Trac `cgi-bin`, `htdocs`, `templates` and `wiki-default` directories that are commonly found in a directory called `share/trac` (the exact location depends on your platform). 
     16If you do a manual (not operating system specific) upgrade, you may also later on want to remove the existing Trac code by deleting the `trac` directory from the Python `lib/site-packages` directory. 
    1717 
    18 If you have a source distribution, you need to run 
    19 {{{ 
    20 python setup.py install 
    21 }}} 
     18The location of the site-packages directory depends on the operating system, and the location in which Python was installed. However, the following locations are common: 
     19 * If you’re using Linux: /usr/lib/python2.X/site-packages 
     20 * If you’re using Windows: C:\Python2.X\lib\site-packages 
     21 * If you’re using MacOSX: /Library/Python2.X/site-packages 
    2222 
    23 to install the new version. If you've downloaded the Windows installer, you execute it, and so on. 
     23You may also want to remove the Trac `cgi-bin`, `htdocs`, `templates` and `wiki-default` directories that are commonly found in a directory called `share/trac` (the exact location depends on your platform). 
     24 
     25If you had the webadmin plugin installed, you can now uninstall it as it is now part of the Trac code base. 
    2426 
    2527=== Upgrade the Trac Environment === 
    2628 
    27 Unless noted otherwise, upgrading between major versions (such as 0.8 and 0.9) involves changes to the database schema, and possibly the layout of the [wiki:TracEnvironment environment directory]. Fortunately, Trac provides automated upgrade scripts to ease the pain. These scripts are run via [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin]: 
     29After restarting, Trac should show the instances which need a manual upgrade via the automated upgrade scripts to ease the pain. These scripts are run via [TracAdmin trac-admin]: 
    2830{{{ 
    2931trac-admin /path/to/projenv upgrade 
     
    3739}}} 
    3840 
     41If you are using custom CSS styles or modified templates in the templates directory of the TracEnvironment, you will need to convert them to the Genshi way of doing things. To continue to use your style sheet, follow the instructions at TracInterfaceCustomization#SiteAppearance. 
     42 
    3943=== Update the Trac Documentation === 
    4044 
    41 Every [wiki:TracEnvironment Trac environment] includes a copy of the Trac documentation for the installed version. As you probably want to keep the included documentation in sync with the installed version of Trac, [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] provides a command to upgrade the documentation: 
     45Every [TracEnvironment Trac environment] includes a copy of the Trac documentation for the installed version. As you probably want to keep the included documentation in sync with the installed version of Trac, [TracAdmin trac-admin] provides a command to upgrade the documentation: 
    4246{{{ 
    4347trac-admin /path/to/projenv wiki upgrade 
     
    4650Note that this procedure will of course leave your `WikiStart` page intact. 
    4751 
     52=== Trac Macros, Plugins === 
     53The Trac macros will need to be adapted, as the old-style wiki-macros are not supported anymore (due to the drop of ClearSilver and the HDF); they need to be converted to the new-style macros, see WikiMacros. When they are converted to the new style, they need to be placed into the plugins directory instead and not wiki-macros, which is no longer scanned for macros or plugins. 
     54 
    4855=== Restart the Web Server === 
     56If you are not running [wiki:TracCgi CGI], reload the new Trac code by restarting your web server. 
    4957 
    50 In order to reload the new Trac code you will need to restart your web server (note this is not necessary for [wiki:TracCgi CGI]). 
     58== Known Issues == 
     59=== parent dir === 
     60If you use a trac parent env configuration and one of the plugins in one child does not work, none of the children work. 
     61=== some core modules won't load ===  
     62This can happen in particular with Python 2.3 on Windows when upgrading without uninstalling first. 
     63Some modules were previously capitalized and were changed to lower case, e.g. trac/About.py became trac/about.py. You may find such messages in the Trac log: 
     64{{{ 
     65ERROR: Skipping "trac.about = trac.about": (can't import "No module named about") 
     66}}} 
     67Remove the `Lib/site-packages/trac` folder and reinstall. 
     68=== Wiki Upgrade === 
     69`trac-admin` will not delete or remove pages that were in version 0.10 but now are not in version 0.11, such as WikiMacros. 
    5170 
    52 == Specific Versions == 
     71== Changing Database Backend == 
     72== SQLite to PostgreSQL == 
    5373 
    54 The following sections discuss any extra actions that may need to be taken to upgrade to specific versions of Trac. 
     74The [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/SqliteToPgScript sqlite2pg] script on [http://trac-hacks.org trac-hacks.org] has been written to assist in migrating a SQLite database to a PostgreSQL database 
    5575 
    56 == From 0.9.x to 0.10.x == 
     76== Older Versions == 
    5777 
    58 Due to some changes in the Wiki syntax, you may notice that certain parts of your pages no longer work as expected: 
    59  * Previously, links to images would result in that image being embedded into the page. Since 0.10, links to images remain plain links. If you want to embed an image in the page, use the `[[Image]]` macro. 
    60  * You can no longer use `%20` in wiki links to encode spaces. Instead, you should quote the name containing spaces (for example, use `wiki:"My page"` instead of `wiki:My%20page`.) 
    61  
    62 Several enhancements have been made to the version control subsystem, in particular for the support of scoped repositories has been improved.  
    63 It is recommended that you perform a [TracAdmin#InteractiveMode trac-admin] '''`resync`''' operation to take advantage of these improvements. 
    64  
    65 Also note that the argument list of the [TracAdmin trac-admin] '''`initenv`''' command has changed: there's a new argument for determining the type of version control system. The old usage was: 
    66 {{{ 
    67    initenv <projectname> <db> <repospath> <templatepath> 
    68 }}} 
    69 The new usage is: 
    70 {{{ 
    71    initenv <projectname> <db> <repostype> <repospath> <templatepath> 
    72 }}} 
    73 If you're using any scripts that automate the creation of Trac environments, you will need to update them. If you're using Subversion, specify `svn` for the `<repostype>` argument. 
    74  
    75 == From 0.9.3 to 0.9.4 == 
    76  
    77 There is a bug in Pysqlite 1.x that causes reports using the "%" character for `LIKE` clauses or date formatting to fail.  You will need to use escape the percent characters with another: "%%". 
    78  
    79 == From 0.9.x to 0.9.3 or later == 
    80  
    81 If you are using plugins you might need to upgrade them. See http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/milestone/0.9.3 for further details. 
    82  
    83 == From 0.9-beta to 0.9 == 
    84  
    85 If inclusion of the static resources (style sheets, javascript, images) is not working, check the value of the `htdocs_location` in trac.ini. For [wiki:TracModPython mod_python], [wiki:TracStandalone Tracd] and [wiki:TracFastCgi FastCGI], you can simply remove the option altogether. For [wiki:TracCgi CGI], you should fix it to point to the URL you mapped the Trac `htdocs` directory to (although you can also remove it and then [wiki:TracCgi#MappingStaticResources map the static resources]). If you're still having problems after removing the option, check the paths in the `trac/siteconfig.py` file and fix them if they're incorrect. 
    86  
    87 If you've been using plugins with a beta release of Trac 0.9, or have disabled some of the built-in components, you might have to update the rules for disabling/enabling components in [wiki:TracIni trac.ini]. In particular, globally installed plugins now need to be enabled explicitly. See TracPlugins and TracIni for more information. 
    88  
    89 If you want to enable the display of all ticket changes in the timeline (the “Ticket Details” option), you now have to explicitly enable that in [wiki:TracIni trac.ini], too: 
    90  
    91 {{{ 
    92 [timeline] 
    93 ticket_show_details = true 
    94 }}} 
    95  
    96 == From 0.8.x to 0.9 == 
    97  
    98 [wiki:TracModPython mod_python] users will also need to change the name of the mod_python handler in the Apache HTTPD configuration: 
    99 {{{ 
    100    from: PythonHandler trac.ModPythonHandler 
    101    to:   PythonHandler trac.web.modpython_frontend 
    102 }}} 
    103  
    104 If you have [http://initd.org/tracker/pysqlite PySQLite] 2.x installed, Trac will now try to open your SQLite database using the SQLite 3.x file format. The database formats used by SQLite 2.8.x and SQLite 3.x are incompatible. If you get an error like ''“file is encrypted or is not a database”'' after upgrading, then you must convert your database file. 
    105  
    106 To do this, you need to have both SQLite 2.8.x and SQLite 3.x installed (they have different filenames so can coexist on the same system). Then use the following commands: 
    107 {{{ 
    108  $ mv trac.db trac2.db 
    109  $ sqlite trac2.db .dump | sqlite3 trac.db 
    110 }}} 
    111  
    112 To update multiple database files at once on linux you may use the following command (replace {{{/var/trac}}} withe the location where your trac installtions reside): 
    113 {{{ 
    114  $ find /var/trac/ -iname "trac.db" | xargs -i bash -c "mv {} {}.2; sqlite {}.2 .dump | sqlite3 {};" 
    115 }}} 
    116  
    117 Remember the give the webserver write permission to trac.db. 
    118  
    119 After testing that the conversion was successful, the `trac2.db` file can be deleted. For more information on the SQLite upgrade see http://www.sqlite.org/version3.html. 
    120  
    121 == From 0.7.x to 0.8 == 
    122  
    123 0.8 adds a new roadmap feature which requires additional permissions. While a 
    124 fresh installation will by default grant ROADMAP_VIEW and MILESTONE_VIEW 
    125 permissions to anonymous, these permissions have to be granted manually when 
    126 upgrading: 
    127 {{{ 
    128  $ trac-admin /path/to/projectenv permission add anonymous MILESTONE_VIEW 
    129  $ trac-admin /path/to/projectenv permission add anonymous ROADMAP_VIEW 
    130 }}} 
     78For upgrades from former versions refer to wiki:0.10/TracUpgrade.
