How do I downgrade to Redmine 1.3.3?

Added by Lawrence Krubner over 8 years ago

We were using Redmine 1.1, then we tried to upgrade to 2.2. I was given a blank CentOS server to work with, and after some serious hassles, I managed to get Ruby installed, then Rails, Gems, Bundler, and Phusion Passenger Standalone, which I think has Nginx embedded.

Then we found that some of the plugins we wanted to use were not compatible with 2.2. So the decision was made to downgrade to 1.3.3.

Sadly, I did the upgrade in January and I have forgotten some details.

I thought I could do the downgrade simply:

cd /home/lkrubner/redmine

rm -rf *

cp -r /home/lawrence/redmine-1.3.3/* .

and then edit a few config files and then all is perfect! Or so I hoped. But no. I get a blank white screen.

I did 2 different Nginx installs:

find / -name error.log
/opt/nginx/logs/error.log
/var/log/nginx/error.log

One of those I think belongs to Phusion. Neither of those have any current error messages in them.

Other than installing the files and changing the config, what else could be wrong? Do I need to downgrade the version of Rails? Ruby?

rails -v

/usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p385@global/gems/bundler-1.2.3/lib/bundler/runtime.rb:197: warning: Insecure world writable dir /home/lawrence in PATH, mode 040777

/usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p385@global/gems/bundler-1.2.3/lib/bundler/runtime.rb:197: warning: Insecure world writable dir /home/lawrence in PATH, mode 040777

Rails 3.2.12

also:

ruby -v
ruby 1.9.3p385 (2013-02-06 revision 39114) [x86_64-linux]

What about the database? Do I have to do a reverse migration?

I suppose I need to restart Passenger too.

Redmine 1.3.3 needed ruby 1.8.7 or 1.8.6 and IIRC it required Rails 2.3.14 which you must not use, because it has serious security problems.
