Upgrade Instructions

The process for upgrading JAMWiki is:

  1. Download the latest JAMWiki WAR file.
  2. Back up all database and/or file data prior to upgrading.
  3. Back up the file and the file that can be found in the /WEB-INF/classes directory.
  4. If you have created any virtual wikis, back up the web.xml file that can be found in the /WEB-INF directory.
  5. Install the new JAMWiki WAR file. See your web application server's documentation for instructions. Note that, if possible, any existing JAMWiki files should be deleted prior to upgrading.
  6. Copy the files backed up in steps three and four back into their old locations, overwriting any new files. You may also need to re-copy your JDBC jar file.
  7. View any page on the Wiki. You will be redirected to the upgrade page and any required upgrade steps will be automatically performed.
