    Comment: Published by Scroll Versions from this space and version 7.0-0

    If both of the following conditions are true, you will need to take the extra steps outlined in Transferring data from MySQL to PostgreSQL when upgrading the supervisor:

    • You are upgrading the supervisor from pre-7.0 to Qube 7 (for example from 6.10-0a to 7.0-0)

    • You wish to bring your Qube 6 job data forward into Qube 7


    Qube! versioning is indicated by major, minor, and point releases in the format major.minor.point (e.g. 5.5.0).


    That's it! The installer will take care of stopping and starting services, downloading and installing software, etc.

    IMPORTANT! Starting with Qube 7.0, the supervisor uses PostgreSQL instead of MySQL as its backend database server. Accordingly, when upgrading from a pre-7.0 version (such as 6.10-0a) to 7.0 or above, there are extra steps that must be taken outside of the Qube Installer, before and after running it, particularly if you require that the old data from MySQL be transferred to PostgreSQL.  Please follow the instructions provided at: Transferring data from MySQL to PostgreSQL.


    Upgrading Manually

    You may still wish to upgrade Qube! manually. Here are the steps for doing that. You will have to either perform these actions as an Administrator (or root) or use sudo.


    1. Stop Activity on the Farm
      It's good practice to first stop current farm activity before doing an upgrade of the Supervisor. Run the following from a command shell to block Workers from picking up new work:
      1. % qblock --all
        Wait for all activity to stop, or pause any running jobs.

    2. Stop the Supervisor service
      Linux:        /sbin/service supervisor stop
      OS X:        SystemStarter stop supervisor 
      Win: (dialog):  Services Window->Supervisor->stop
      Win (cmdline): net stop qubesupervisor

    3. Uninstall the old version of Qube! and install the new version
      1. rpm -e qube-core-ver-releaseos.arch.rpm 
      2. rpm -e qube-supervisor-ver-release-os.arch.rpm 
      3. rpm –ivh qube-core-ver-releaseos.arch.rpm 
      4. rpm –ivh qube-supervisor-ver-release-os.arch.rpm 
      OS X:
      1. Follow the standard installation with the .pkg/.mpkg installers (see Installation section for details). The installers will show "Update" instead of "Install" to indicate this is an update. 
      1. Open the "Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs" and remove the Qube Components ("Qube! Supervisor Service", "Qube! Core", etc).

    4. Install the new Qube Core and Supervisor (see Installation section for details)
      Windows Only:
      1. On an Administrator command prompt, run "C:\Program Files\pfx\qube\supe_postinstall.bat"
    5. Restart Services
      Linux Only: /sbin/service supervisor start
      All OSs:            qbunlock --all
