Upgrade Ravada

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

Step 1

Download the deb package of the new version found at the UPC ETSETB repository.

wget http://infoteleco.upc.edu/img/debian/ravada_2.2.3_ubuntu-20.04_all.deb

Step 2

Install the deb package.

sudo apt install ./ravada_2.2.3_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

Step 3

Reconfigure systemd.

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Step 4

Restart the services.

sudo systemctl restart rvd_back
sudo systemctl restart rvd_front

Step 5

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.
