Upgrading Seafile Windows Server

  • Minor Upgrade
  • Major Upgrade
  • Upgrade Windows Service

Note:You must shutdown seafile server before you upgrade.

Uncompress the new version of Seafile Server

Before you upgrade, assume you have:

C:/SeafileProgram
             |______ seafile-server-3.0.0/

Then the first step is to download the new version of Seafile Server and uncompress it to C:/SeafileProgram. After this you should have:

C:/SeafileProgram
             |______ seafile-server-3.0.0/
             |______ seafile-server-3.1.0/

Minor upgrade (like upgrade from 3.0.0 to 3.0.1)

Now assume you are upgrading from Seafile Windows Server 3.0.0 to 3.0.1

Move the contents of the avatars folder

Go to the folder seafile-server-3.0.0/seahub/media/avatars

The avatars folder contains all the avatars uploaded by seafile users.

If you have a user foo@foo.com, then in this folder, you will find a subfolder foo@foo.com. This subfolder contains the avatar pictures of the user foo@foo.com.

Copy all subfolders like foo@foo.com to seafile-server-3.0.1/seahub/media/avatars. So that when you start the new seafile 3.0.1 server, these avatars can be load correctly.

Major upgrade (like upgrade from 3.0.0 to 3.1.0)

Now assume you are upgrading from Seafile Windows Server 3.0.x to 3.1.y:

Run the major upgrade script

Run the database upgrade script

  • Go to seafile-server-3.1.y/upgrade
  • Right click the file upgrade_3.0_3.1.bat
  • Choose "run as administrator"

If you're using MySQL, you need to manually upgrade the database yourself:

  • Go to the folder seafile-server-3.1.y/upgrade/sql/3.1.0/mysql/
  • If there are a file ccnet.sql, run it with the ccnet-db database
    mysql ccnet-db < ccnet.sql
    
  • If there are a file seafile.sql, run it with the seafile-db database
    mysql ccnet-db < seafile.sql
    
  • If there are a file seahub.sql, run it with the seahub-db database
    mysql seahub-db < seafile.sql
    

Copy avatars

Copy all subfolders of seafile-server-3.0.0/seahub/media/avatars to seafile-server-3.1.0/seahub/media/avatars
