How to upgrade?

Post by TaTHaR » Sun Oct 09, 2016 3:42 pm

Unreal 4.0.7
Anope 2.0.4

Hello,

just to be sure this question. When you upgrade lets say from 4.0.5 to 4.0.6 is it then enough to only copie your old unrealircd.conf or do you need to use the folder conf from 4.0.5 in 4.0.6 ?

Best regards, Herman.

Hmm, I see there is no upgrading information in the wiki/docs indeed.

It's simple for 4.0.x (and different from the old 3.2.x procedure):
0. Backup your /home/xxx/unrealircd directory: cp -Rav /home/xxx/unrealircd /home/xxx/unrealircd.bak
1. Extract the new unrealircd-4.0.X.tar.gz somewhere
2. Go to the just extracted directory ('cd unrealircd-4.0.7' for example)
3. Run ./Config. It will ask you where you want UnrealIRCd installed, this is normally /home/yourusername/unrealircd
4. Run 'make'
5. Run 'make install'

This will install UnrealIRCd, just like your previous version, to /home/yourusername/unrealircd. There is no need to copy or move anything since the new version is installed in the same location as the old version.

I just created this page. Is it clear enough? https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Upgrading

There I also explicitly mention there that you can upgrade from any 4.0.X version to any newer version (eg: 4.0.1 straight to 4.0.7).

1 more question:

So actually you just install unrealircd over the excisting unrealircd and that won't overwrite the unrealircd.conf?

Take a backup copy of your configuration files anyway.
