Upgrade notes - 6.10¶
This documentation describes upgrading from 6.8.x to 6.10.
Enonic XP 6.10 now requires minimum Java 1.8.92
1. Backup the installation¶
Backup you current installation. This is described in Backup and Restore.
You could also do a dump of the system, but then you will loose versions if you have to reload it.
2. Install new version¶
Download Enonic XP http://repo.enonic.com/public/com/enonic/xp/distro/6.10.3/distro-6.10.3.zip and install according to your setup.
Remember to update any startup scripts you might have to launch your new installation given a server restart
3. Configure XP_HOME¶
The next step depends on your setup. Do you have your $XP_HOME folder outside or inside the $XP_INSTALL folder?
Outside the $XP_INSTALL - folder:
Make sure the new installation points to the correct $XP_HOME folder.
Inside the $XP_INSTALL - folder:
Copy your $OLD_XP_INSTALL/home folder to the the new $NEW_XP_INSTALL/ (on all nodes).
4. Stop the old installation¶
5. Start the new installation¶
Lazy session creation¶
Starting from 6.9.2, sessions are now lazy created. You should not expect the cookie ‘JSESSIONID’ to be set if not necessary.
