Upgrade from 1.1.3 to 2.4.3?

Added by Leo Crowley almost 8 years ago

(sorry for my bad english) I have an instance of redmine running 1.1.3 on a windows machine. I remember it was not easy to make it run, my biggest problem was with ruby and dependencies. But now I need to run 2.4.3... so, maybe this is a crazy question but it is possible to upgrade from 1.1.3? Has anyome attempt to do this? How can I do it?

thanks.

First, sorry for posting this on the wrong forum. I have just upgraded my redmine instance and it worked perfectly fine, I cannot believe it... my steps:

  • Installed a new instance of redmine on another windows machine using bitnami installer (i cannot believe how fast and easy this was)
  • Exported the mysql database from 1.1.3 (called redmine).
  • Imported the mysql database on the new machine. Renamed the bitnami_redmine database to bitnami_redmine2.
  • Renamed my old redmine database to bitnami_redmine.
  • Executed the command: bundle exec rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production

And thats it. Redmine is working perfectly.

Thanks for posting the steps Leo. I've been looking to do the same thing you did and those steps you listed worked like a charm!

I recommend you to remove all your plugins first...

then install them one by one if they are 2.4.3 compatible.
