We try to make the upgrading procedure easy. Also if you are running a very ancient or legacy release, fear not ! We did our best so everything is set up with minimal user intervention.
In order to upgrade Ravada, you have to do a few steps:
Steps for a clean update¶
Download the deb package of the new version found at the UPC ETSETB repository.
Install the deb package.
sudo apt install ./ravada_1.8.0_ubuntu-20.04_all.deb
On some upgrades may be required to install some dependencies. You will see because the packaging system will warn about it:
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ravada: ravada depends on libdatetime-perl; however: Package libdatetime-perl is not installed.
If so, install those dependencies automatically running:
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
Restart the services.
sudo systemctl restart rvd_back sudo systemctl restart rvd_front
Check the apache configuration
If you upgrade from older releases you may have to add some lines to the apache proxy configuration. Check the Apache proxy guide.
