Migraton from 3.4 to 3.8?


#1

Hi all,

I just wanted to check that a migration from 3.4 to 3.8 is going
to be supported, i.e. that if there is a need for database conversion,
the tools are provided by upstream.

Thanks a lot, can’t wait to use 3.8 :slight_smile:

Migration is supported. And it’s really good time to check it on copy
of your DB.On 6/10/08, Richard Hartmann richih.mailinglist@gmail.com wrote:

Database?
And, as pointed out, unless the DB spans a rack full of storage, try it
on a copy.
I did a migration from 3.4 to 3.6.x and PostgreSQL almost bit me
(because of unicode characters in the DB that later releases of
PostgreSQL wouldn’t accept anymore).
Moving from FreeBSD5.4 to 6.2, advancing two PostgreSQL releases (8.0 to
8.2) and one RT3 release also resulted in a noticeable speed-increase.
On the same hardware.
Will look to try out 3.8 soon.

cheers,
Rainer

I will actually do this on an all new virtual machine, but yes, backups
of the database are a plus :slight_smile:

Thanks,
