Requirements

Avalon 6.3 requires Ruby 2.3 or newer. If you're using RVM, simply run

Code Block
languagebash
rvm list # Get current ruby version, eg 2.2.1
rvm upgrade 2.2.1 2.4.1 # Installs Ruby 2.4.1 and migrate gemsets, wrappers, aliases and environment files

Upgrade Steps

For Manual Installations

Download and deploy new code from avalon repo

...

Code Block
languagebash
pkill -f resque
RAILS_ENV=production BACKGROUND=yes bundle exec rake resque:scheduler
RAILS_ENV=production BACKGROUND=yes QUEUE=* bundle exec rake resque:work

Configuration change

As of 6.3, Avalon is using the flexible and increasingly popular Config gem. Default settings for Avalon now live at config/settings.yml, which should not be altered. Any custom config should be placed in config/settings/<environment>.local.yml which will selectively override the default values.

Properly formatted environment variables can also override Avalon settings. For example, SETTINGS__DOMAIN__HOST will override

Code Block
languagebash
domain:
  host:

A list of config values can be found at Configuration Files#config/settings.yml

For Docker Installations

Update new code from avalon-docker

...

Note that the names of some environment variables have changed (in docker-compose.yml):

languagebash
-      - MEDIA_PATH=/masterfiles
+      - SETTINGS__MATTERHORN__MEDIA_PATH=/masterfiles
