Gespage server application upgrade procedure


The update procedure below describes the case of a standard configuration with the PostgreSQL database included as standard in Gespage.


In case of MS-SQL database, please contact Gespage support.


Saving the configuration
 

Before carrying out the update steps, it is necessary to save certain elements.

If the server is virtualized, I invite you to take a snapshot of the VM before carrying out the different steps.

It is possible that some Gespage files were customized when Gespage was first installed. These files should not be impacted by the Gespage update, it is still preferable to back them up beforehand.


Possible custom files are:

  • AD synchronization customization script. This script is called LDAPImport.groovy and is located under the directory C:\Program Files\Gespage\GespageCore\server\resources\scripts
  • Save the keystore.jks and cacert.jks files in the C:\Program Files\Gespage\GespageCore\server\config directory, these files may contain a certificate for the application's https access.

 

Performing the update

Database backup

You must save Gespage database

This action is carried out via the Gespage administration page under the Server\System\Backup tab:

The backup file is then available on the server in the folder (default location) : 

    C:\Program Files\Gespage\GespageCore\db\postgresql\save


Uninstalling Gespage v8 and PostgreSQL (Windows)

You must then uninstall Gespage V8 and Postgres 12.


Installing Gespage v9 (Windows)

Then, you must launch the Gespage v9 installer, specifying that this is the installation of a new server:


Installing  Gespage v9 (Linux) 

On Gespage v9, the supported distributions are both Debian and Ubuntu. The minimum versions supported are Debian 11 and Ubuntu 20.04.

 

If you are using an older distribution version, we recommend installing a new server for the Gespage migration process.


For installing Gespage on Debian, please see the new article : FAQ Install Gespage v9 on Linux



Import database backup

Once the installation is complete, all you have to do is import your backup to the new database via the Gespage administration page in the System\Restoration menu:
