    77Typically, there are seven steps involved in upgrading to a newer version of Trac:
     
    99=== 1. Bring your server off-line
    1010
    11 It is not a good idea to update a running server: the server processes may have parts of the current packages cached in memory, and updating the code will likely trigger [#ZipImportError internal errors].
    12 
    13 === 2. Update the Trac Code === #UpdatetheTracCode
     11It is not a good idea to update a running server: the server processes may have parts of the current packages cached in memory, and updating the code will likely trigger [#ZipImportError internal errors].
     12
     13Although a database backup will be implicitly created by default when upgrading the environment, it is always a good idea to perform a full backup of the environment using the [TracBackup hotcopy] command before beginning.
     14
     15=== 2. Update the Trac Code #UpdatetheTracCode
    1416
    1517Get the new version as described in TracInstall, or your operating system specific procedure.
    1618
    17 If you already have a 0.11 version of Trac installed via `easy_install`, it might be easiest to also use `easy_install` to upgrade your Trac installation:
    18 
    19 {{{
    20 # easy_install --upgrade Trac==0.12
     19If you already have a 0.12 version of Trac installed via `easy_install`, it might be easiest to also use `easy_install` to upgrade your Trac installation:
     20
     21{{{#!sh
     22easy_install --upgrade Trac==1.0
    2123}}}
    2224
     
    2931 * on MacOSX: `/Library/Python/2.X/site-packages`
    3032
    31 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.)
    32 
    33 This cleanup is not mandatory, but makes it easier to troubleshoot issues later on, as you won't waste your time looking at code or templates from a previous release that are not being used anymore... As usual, make a backup before actually deleting things.
    34 
    35 === 3. Upgrade the Trac Environment === #UpgradetheTracEnvironment
     33You 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. This cleanup is not mandatory, but makes it easier to troubleshoot issues later on, as your installation is uncluttered by code or templates from a previous release that is not used anymore. As usual, make a backup before actually removing things.
     34
     35=== 3. Upgrade the Trac Environment #UpgradetheTracEnvironment
    3636
    3737Environment upgrades are not necessary for minor version releases unless otherwise noted.
    3838
    3939After 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]:
    40 {{{
     40{{{#!sh
    4141trac-admin /path/to/projenv upgrade
    4242}}}
     
    4545
    4646Note that a backup of your database will be performed automatically prior to the upgrade.
    47 This feature is relatively new for the PostgreSQL or MySQL database backends, so if it fails, you will have to backup the database manually. Then, to perform the actual upgrade, run:
    48 {{{

     48{{{#!sh

    5050}}}
     
    5252=== 4. Update the Trac Documentation === #UpdatetheTracDocumentation
    5353
    54 Every [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:
    55 {{{
     54By default, every [TracEnvironment Trac environment] includes a copy of the Trac documentation for the installed version. However, to keep the included documentation in sync with the installed version of Trac, use the following [TracAdmin trac-admin] command to upgrade the documentation:
     55{{{#!sh
    5656trac-admin /path/to/projenv wiki upgrade
    5757}}}
     
    5959Note that this procedure will leave your `WikiStart` page intact.

    62 === 5. Refresh static resources ===
     61=== 5. Refresh static resources
    6362
    6463If you have set up a web server to give out static resources directly (accessed using the `/chrome/` URL) then you will need to refresh them using the same command:
    65 {{{
     64{{{#!sh
    6665trac-admin /path/to/env deploy /deploy/path

    76 ==== Upgrading from Trac 0.12 to Trac 1.0 ==== #to1.0
    77 
     74=== 6. Steps specific to a given Trac version
     75
     76==== Upgrading from Trac 0.12 to Trac 1.0 #to1.0
     77
     78===== Python 2.4 no longer supported
     79Upgrade Python to at least 2.5, but not 3.0.
     80
     81===== Subversion components not enabled by default for new installations
    7882The Trac components for Subversion support are no longer enabled by default. To enable the svn support, you need to make sure the `tracopt.versioncontrol.svn` components are enabled, for example by setting the following in the TracIni:
    79 {{{
     83{{{#!ini
    8084[components]
    8185tracopt.versioncontrol.svn.* = enabled
     
    8387The upgrade procedure should take care of this and change the TracIni appropriately, unless you already had the svn components explicitly disabled.
    8488
    85 Another step in the automatic upgrade will change the way the attachments are stored. If you're a bit paranoid, you might want to take a backup of the `attachments` directory before upgrading (but if you are, you already did a full copy of the environment, no?). In case the `attachments` directory contains some files which are //not// attachments, the last step of the migration to the new layout will fail: the deletion of the now unused `attachments` directory can't be done if there are still files and folders in it. You may ignore this error, but better go have a look to these files, move them elsewhere and remove the `attachments` directory manually to cleanup the environment. The attachments themselves are now all located in your environment below the `files/attachments` directory.
    86 
    87 
    88 ==== Upgrading from Trac 0.11 to Trac 0.12 ====
    89 
    90 ===== Python 2.3 no longer supported =====
    91 The minimum supported version of python is now 2.4
    92 
    93 ===== SQLite v3.x required =====
     89===== Attachments migrated to new location

The attachments themselves are now all located in your environment below the `files/attachments` directory.
     91
     92===== Behavior of `[ticket] default_owner` changed
     93Prior to 1.0, the owner field of new tickets always defaulted to `[ticket] default_owner` when the value was not empty. If the value was empty, the owner field defaulted to to the Component's owner. In 1.0 and later, the `default_owner` must be set to `< default >` to make new tickets default to the Component's owner. This change allows the `default_owner` to be set to an empty value if no default owner is desired.
     94
     95==== Upgrading from Trac 0.11 to Trac 0.12
     96
     97===== Python 2.3 no longer supported
     98The minimum supported version of Python is now 2.4.
     99
     100===== SQLite v3.x required
    94101SQLite v2.x is no longer supported. If you still use a Trac database of this format, you'll need to convert it to SQLite v3.x first. See [trac:PySqlite#UpgradingSQLitefrom2.xto3.x] for details.
    95102
    96 ===== PySqlite 2 required =====
    97 PySqlite 1.1.x is no longer supported. Please install 2.5.5 or later if possible (see [#Tracdatabaseupgrade Trac database upgrade] below).
    98 
    99 ===== Multiple Repository Support =====
     103===== [trac:PySqlite] 2 required
     104[trac:PySqlite] 1.1.x is no longer supported. Please install 2.5.5 or later if possible, see [#Tracdatabaseupgrade Trac database upgrade] below.
     105
     106===== Multiple Repository Support
    100107The latest version includes support for multiple repositories. If you plan to add more repositories to your Trac instance, please refer to TracRepositoryAdmin#Migration.
    101108
    102 This may be of interest to users with only one repository, since there's now a way to avoid the potentially costly resync check at every request.
    103 
    104 ===== Resynchronize the Trac Environment Against the Source Code Repository =====
    105 
    106 Each [TracEnvironment Trac environment] must be resynchronized against the source code repository in order to avoid errors such as "[http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/6120 No changeset ??? in the repository]" while browsing the source through the Trac interface:

     111===== Resynchronize the Trac Environment Against the Source Code Repository
     112
     113Each [TracEnvironment Trac environment] must be resynchronized against the source code repository in order to avoid errors such as "[trac:#6120 No changeset ??? in the repository]" while browsing the source through the Trac interface:
     114
     115{{{#!sh
    109116trac-admin /path/to/projenv repository resync '*'

    111118
    112 ===== Improved repository synchronization =====
     119===== Improved repository synchronization
    113120In addition to supporting multiple repositories, there is now a more efficient method for synchronizing Trac and your repositories.
    114121
    115122While you can keep the same synchronization as in 0.11 adding the post-commit hook as outlined in TracRepositoryAdmin#Synchronization and TracRepositoryAdmin#ExplicitSync will allow more efficient synchronization and is more or less required for multiple repositories.
    116123
    117 Note that if you were using the `trac-post-commit-hook`, ''you're strongly advised to upgrade it'' to the new hook documented in the above references, as the old hook will not work with anything else than the default repository and even for this case, it won't trigger the appropriate notifications.
    118 
    119 ===== Authz permission checking =====
    120 The authz permission checking has been migrated to a fine-grained permission policy. If you use authz permissions (aka `[trac] authz_file` and `authz_module_name`), you must add `AuthzSourcePolicy` in front of your permission policies in `[trac] permission_policies`. You must also remove `BROWSER_VIEW`, `CHANGESET_VIEW`, `FILE_VIEW` and `LOG_VIEW` from your global permissions (with `trac-admin $ENV permission remove` or the "Permissions" admin panel).
    121 
    122 ===== Microsecond timestamps =====
    123 All timestamps in database tables (except the `session` table) have been changed from "seconds since epoch" to "microseconds since epoch" values. This change should be transparent to most users, except for custom reports. If any of your reports use date/time columns in calculations (e.g. to pass them to `datetime()`), you must divide the values retrieved from the database by 1'000'000. Similarly, if a report provides a calculated value to be displayed as a date/time (i.e. with a column named "time", "datetime", "changetime", "date", "created" or "modified"), you must provide a microsecond timestamp, that is, multiply your previous calculation with 1'000'000.
    124 
    125 ==== Upgrading from Trac 0.10 to Trac 0.11 ====
    126 ===== Site Templates and Styles =====
     124Note that if you were using the `trac-post-commit-hook`, ''you're strongly advised to upgrade it'' to the new hook documented in the above references and [TracWorkflow#Howtocombinethetracopt.ticket.commit_updaterwiththetestingworkflow here], as the old hook will not work with anything else than the default repository and even for this case, it won't trigger the appropriate notifications.

     126===== Authz permission checking
     127The authz permission checking has been migrated to a fine-grained permission policy. If you use authz permissions (aka `[trac] authz_file` and `authz_module_name`), you must add `AuthzSourcePolicy` in front of your permission policies in `[trac] permission_policies`.

This change should be transparent to most users, except for custom reports. If any of your reports use date/time columns in calculations (e.g. to pass them to `datetime()`), you must divide the values retrieved from the database by 1'000'000.

     131
     132==== Upgrading from Trac 0.10 to Trac 0.11
     133===== Site Templates and Styles
    127134The templating engine has changed in 0.11 to Genshi, please look at TracInterfaceCustomization for more information.
    128135
    129 If 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.
    130 
    131 ===== Trac Macros, Plugins =====
    132 The Trac macros will need to be adapted, as the old-style wiki-macros are not supported anymore (due to the drop of [trac: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.
    133 
    134 ===== For FCGI/WSGI/CGI users =====
     136If you are using custom CSS 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.
     137
     138===== Trac Macros, Plugins
     139The Trac macros will need to be adapted, as the old-style wiki-macros are not supported anymore due to the drop of [trac: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.
     140
     141===== For FCGI/WSGI/CGI users
    135142For those who run Trac under the CGI environment, run this command in order to obtain the trac.*gi file:
    136 {{{
     143{{{#!sh
    137144trac-admin /path/to/env deploy /deploy/directory/path
    138145}}}
     
    140147This will create a deploy directory with the following two subdirectories: `cgi-bin` and `htdocs`. Then update your Apache configuration file `httpd.conf` with this new `trac.cgi` location and `htdocs` location.
    141148
    142 ===== Web Admin plugin integrated =====
    143 If you had the webadmin plugin installed, you can uninstall it as it is part of the Trac code base since 0.11.
    144 
    145 === 7. Restart the Web Server === #RestarttheWebServer
     149===== Web Admin plugin integrated
     150If you had the [trac:WebAdmin] plugin installed, you can uninstall it as it is part of the Trac code base since 0.11.
     151
     152===== New Default Configurable Workflow
     153
     154When you run `trac-admin <env> upgrade`, your `trac.ini` will be modified to include a `[ticket-workflow]` section. The workflow configured in this case is the original workflow, so that ticket actions will behave like they did in 0.10.
     155
     156Graphically, that looks like this:
     157
     158{{{#!Workflow width=500 height=240
     159leave = * -> *
     160leave.operations = leave_status
     161leave.default = 1
     162accept = new -> assigned
     163accept.permissions = TICKET_MODIFY
     164accept.operations = set_owner_to_self
     165resolve = new,assigned,reopened -> closed
     166resolve.permissions = TICKET_MODIFY
     167resolve.operations = set_resolution
     168reassign = new,assigned,reopened -> new
     169reassign.permissions = TICKET_MODIFY
     170reassign.operations = set_owner
     171reopen = closed -> reopened
     172reopen.permissions = TICKET_CREATE
     173reopen.operations = del_resolution
     174}}}
     175
     176There are some significant caveats in this, such as accepting a ticket sets it to 'assigned' state, and assigning a ticket sets it to 'new' state. So you will probably want to migrate to "basic" workflow; [trac:source:trunk/contrib/workflow/migrate_original_to_basic.py contrib/workflow/migrate_original_to_basic.py] may be helpful. See TracWorkflow for a detailed description of the new basic workflow.
     177
     178===== Global Configuration
     179In versions prior to 0.11, the global configuration was by default located in `$prefix/share/trac/conf/trac.ini` or `/etc/trac/trac.ini`, depending on the distribution. You may want to specify that file to inherit from when upgrading.  Literally, when upgrading you have to add an `[inherit]` section to your project's `trac.ini` file. Additionally, you have to move your customized templates and common images from `$prefix/share/trac/...` to the new location.
     180
     181=== 7. Restart the Web Server #RestarttheWebServer
    146182
    147183If you are not running [wiki:TracCgi CGI], reload the new Trac code by restarting your web server.

    151 Things you should pay attention to, while upgrading.
     185== Known Issues
    152186
    153187=== Customized Templates
    154188
    155 Trac supports customization of its Genshi templates by placing copies of the templates in the `<env>/templates` folder of your [TracEnvironment environment] or in a common location specified in the [[TracIni#GlobalConfiguration| [inherit] templates_dir]] configuration setting. If you choose to do so, be wary that you will need to repeat your changes manually on a copy of the new templates when you upgrade to a new release of Trac (even a minor one), as the templates will likely evolve. So keep a diff around ;-)
    156 
    157 The preferred way to perform TracInterfaceCustomization is to write a custom plugin doing an appropriate `ITemplateStreamFilter` transformation, as this is more robust in case of changes: we usually won't modify element `id`s or change CSS `class`es, and if we have to do so, this will be documented in the TracDev/ApiChanges pages.
    158 
    159 === !ZipImportError ===
    160 
    161 Due to internal caching of zipped packages,  whenever the content of the packages change on disk, the in-memory zip index will no longer match and you'll get irrecoverable !ZipImportError errors. Better anticipate and bring your server down for maintenance before upgrading.

    176 === Upgrading Python ===
    177 
    178 Upgrading Python to a newer version will require reinstallation of Python packages: Trac of course; also [http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools easy_install], if you've been using that.  Assuming you're using Subversion, you'll also need to upgrade the Python bindings for svn.
    179 
    180 ==== Windows and Python 2.6 ====
    181 
    182 If you've been using !CollabNet's Subversion package, you may need to uninstall that in favor of [http://alagazam.net/ Alagazam], which has the Python bindings readily available (see TracSubversion).  The good news is, that works with no tweaking.
