Hi,


You can find your existing version of eGW by launching the application... You will know if it's 1.4.001 or 1.4.002 in the homepage
Quote
Powered by eGroupWare Version 1.4.002


Else you can check your installed version with this command:
Code: [Select]
# rpm -qa | grep egroupwareAnd use this quick guide:
=> Followings RPMs uses eGW v1.4.002 and are directly updatable:
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4.002-2
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4.002-1

=> Followings RPMs uses eGW v1.4.002 and need a fix (uninstall with rpm -e --noscripts before updating)
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4-10
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4-9

=> Followings RPMs uses eGW v1.4.001 or v1.4 and need a fix (uninstall with rpm -e --noscripts)
=> As these RPMs use an older version of eGW, you have an extra step which is to upgrade your existing install in Setup/Admin Config (as described in the wiki)
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4-8
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4-7
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4-6
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4-5
  • smeserver-egroupware-1.4-4


I've tested successfully updates from:
  • v1.4.002-1
  • v1.4-10
  • v1.4-9
  • v1.4-8
  • v1.4-6
I didn't test from other versions, the update process should work the same.


Regards,
Sylvain

Sylvain,

I followed your Wiki instructions except I changed the
Code: [Select]
rpm -Uvh smeserver-egroupware-1.4.002-2.noarch.rpm
to
Code: [Select]
yum localinstall smeserver-egroupware-1.4.002-2.noarch.rpm.  The upgrade from 1.4.002-1 went OK to 1.4.002-2 with no loss of data and the instructions in 'Simple Application Management' were never asked or performed even upon logging in and looking for the Update button.  Everything seems OK.  Is this OK to do?  The prevailing advice  is to use yum localinstall whenever you can so updates can be tracked.  Do you think this is a good idea to do in this case?  I was just testing it as you had tested the direct route.  I might try it both ways to see what happens, but it appears to be OK for now.

Thanks,
Uniqsys

Hi,


You can use RPM or YUM to install eGW... It will do exactly the same things!
If there was no upgrade needed, then you were already in 1.4.002 version!!!

Hi,

I've made a new RPM with some improvements and minor bug fixes...
Gallery2 has been added (but you need to finish the install if you want to use it)
SME integration has been improved.

As usual, more informations on the Wiki:

I just tried to install the RPM on my fully-updated 7.2 test box. I had previously installed 1.2.x there, installed from tarball prior to an RPM being available. I mv'd the /opt/egroupware directory to /opt/egroupware.old prior to beginning; I've subsequently renamed the MySQL database, too.

However, I am getting an error in the RPM:

error: %pre(smeserver-egroupware-1.4.002-3.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error:   install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping smeserver-egroupware-1.4.002-3

This is whether I run rpm -Uvh or rpm -ivh, whether the original directory is there or not, so it looks like the smeserver-egroupware-1.4.002-3.noarch.rpm has an issue.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Hi,

As told in the wiki, this RPM can't update v1.2.x

Yes, I read that - hence renaming the original installation directory and then the MySQL database. As I noted, I get the error even when using rpm -i.

Hi,

Don't use rpm -i! -i is used for kernel install if I remember well...
Use rpm -U or better: yum localinstall

[Edit]
PS: If you want a new install of eGroupWare, just ensure that:
1) /opt/egroupware/ DOES'NT EXIST
2) MySQL database egroupware DOES'NT EXIST
3) MySQL user egwuser DOES'NT EXIST

"rpm -i" just means "install" - "rpm -U" means "update".

So, on my test box I have:

1. Renamed the old egroupware MySQL database
2. Deleted the MySQL user
3. Renamed the egroupware directory in /opt

When I run yum localinstall, I see this:

I re-downloaded the RPM to ensure it wasn't a bad download - the above is what transpired. It really looks as if this RPM is expecting a version to be installed already, and is failing when it can't find an existing database. Has anyone managed to install this version of the RPM on a system with no previous version?

Hi,

The RPM only backup when the folder /opt/egroupware can be found.
Please remove old install first (templates+files+DB)

As you can see from the directory lists below, I have cleaned out the previous non-RPM version of eGroupWare. I still get the same failure when I run yum localinstall.

Hi Des,

Yes, I have with success.  I started with a test box with AFFA running on it otherwise an out-of-the-box installation.  Sorry I can't help more.

[cut]

maybe you have to delete db keys from previous invalid install

config show egroupware

config delete egroupware

Thanks for your suggestion; however, there aren't any keys set:

[root@blackadder RPMS]# config show egroupware
[root@blackadder RPMS]#

When I go to " https://mysmebox/egroupware " and try to Login I notice on the top of the Login Box: " Your session could not be verified. "

I have crated a admin User Account but as soon as I want to try to Login it says: " Blocked, too many attempts "

Please Help  :-(
