[EP-tech] Re: Upgrading eprints version to 3.3.12

Hi Andrew,

	Once I've installed a clean version of 3.3.12 on the server, what is the rest of the procedure ? A dump of mysql of the production server copied over the new one  and then run the /bin/upgrade process ? Any chance that Seb would give me some advice on this ?

Thanks,

Pierre

Hi Pierre,

It may be that Seb will be able to give you some advice tomorrow, but for now here are our tips:

Yes, it should run on CentOS 6.5 64 bits.

You would probably be best to install on a clean system in parallel rather than trying to upgrade in situ.

Here are some packages that you will need:
yum install mysql mod_perl httpd libxml2 pdf-tools ImageMagick ghostscript ghostscript-fonts mysql-server antiword poppler-utils yum install perl-XML-LibXML perl-Unicode-String perl-CGI perl-Date-Calc perl-Digest-SHA

Much depends on how much customisation you have done and how cleanly.

Andrew
