How to Update to Variations 5.0.6 Client and Server

This page lists explains how to upgrade from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6 for both the Variations server and client. If you have any questions about or problems with the update process, please contact Chris Colvard (812-856-0026, cjcolvar@indiana.edu).

Step 1. Upgrade the Variations Servers from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6

Note: The upgrade process will stop your cataloging and production servers. You will also have to allow time for some hand-editing of configuration files to preserve your local customizations, as indicated by the output of the update script you will run. And finally you will have to restart your Variations server applications.

To install the server update, execute the following commands from your Variations install directory, /home/dmlserv.

  1. Download the Variations_5.0.6_Update.tar.gz file to /home/dmlserv
  2. First, untar the server update file: tar xvfz Variations_5.0.6_Update.tar.gz
  3. Then change directories to the update directory: cd Variations_5.0.6_Update
  4. Run the update script and create a log of its output: ./update.sh | tee -a update.sh.log
  5. Read through the output of the update script (also available in the log file, update.sh.log).
  6. Manually edit any files that did not patch correctly or need manual editing as noted by the update output.
    • Example versions of files that need to be manually edited can be found in /home/dmlserv/Variations_5.0.6_Update/.
  7. Restart the Variations cataloging and production servers.

Step 2. Upgrade Variations clients from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6

Ideally, this should be done by creating a new Variations installer based on a Variations 5.0.6 client Windows zip or Mac tar.

  1. Download and unzip (or untar) the 5.0.6 client distribution
  2. Copy over any configuration files you modified for your 5.0.5 client. See Configuring the Client - 5.0.7 for a list of client configuration files. See Windows Client Changes and Mac Client Changes below for files that have changed in 5.0.6 and should be merged with 5.0.5 copies.
  3. Follow the directions in Building the Client Installer - 5.0.7
