Upgrade Review Board

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

It is strongly recommended to create a backup before starting the update process. If you have important data, create and try to restore a backup to ensure that everything works properly.

You can upgrade the application only without modifying any other stack components. Follow these steps:

  • Stop all servers.

  • Back up the installdir/apps/reviewboard directory in case the upgrade process fails and you need to restore it.

  • At the command prompt, execute these commands:

      $ cd installdir/apps/reviewboard/htdocs/
      $ sudo venv/bin/easy_install -U ReviewBoard
      $ sudo venv/bin/rb-site upgrade installdir/apps/reviewboard/rb-sites/reviewboard/
  • Restart the servers.

      $ sudo installdir/ restart
