Upgrading your PANDA

Before you get started

Although we strive to make upgrades as simple as possible, upgrading your PANDA will require that you know how to SSH into your server. If you need help with this see our guide to Connecting with SSH. And don’t be afraid to ask for help on the PANDA Users Group.

Warning

Your PANDA will be unavailable while upgrading. Typically this will not last more than five minutes, but it will vary by release. You should plan to perform PANDA upgrades during off hours.

The following release are in reverse version order. They must be performed in sequence (from lowest version number to highest version number–bottom to top order on this page).

1.1.0 to 1.1.1

To upgrade your PANDA from the 1.1.0 release to the 1.1.1 release, SSH into your server and execute the following commands:

wget https://raw.github.com/pandaproject/panda/1.1.1/scripts/migrations/1.1.0-to-1.1.1.sh
sudo bash 1.1.0-to-1.1.1.sh

Your PANDA will be stopped, the upgrade will be applied and it will then be restarted. A log of this process will be put in /var/log/panda-upgrade-1.1.1.log.

After running this upgrade your PANDA will be reset into setup mode, giving you an opportunity to set your local timezone and create an administrative user. You should visit your PANDA soon after the upgrade to complete this process. If already have an administrative user configured, simply create one with dummy data and then deactivate or delete it after completing the setup. DO NOT attempt to recreate a user that already exists. Doing so will render that account unable to login.

Note

This upgrade will automatically upgrade your server’s Ubuntu distrubution to version 12.04. This long-release version of Ubuntu will be supported by Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu) for five years. If you have made any customizations to your PANDA’s server environment be aware that this upgrade could have unintended consequences.
