[FAQ] Update madsonic with a war package on debian linux

Postby jonnymnemo » Thu Oct 11, 2012 9:36 am

Sometimes, madsonic updates are only provided in .exe and .war packages.
On ubuntu/debian, with a war package, you can easy update your madsonic.
(This works if you previously installed a .deb version of madsonic, I'm not sure it will work if you come from subsonic)

Unzip the files in the /usr/share/subsonic folder, then in the same folder do a
Code: Select all
chmod +x *

If you don't, subsonic won't be able to start.

In summary (you have to be in root):
Code: Select all
service subsonic stop
cd /usr/share/subsonic
wget put_the_link_to_the_file -O the_name_you_want_to_give_it.zip
unzip the_name_you_want_to_give_it.zip
chmod +x *
service subsonic start


All builds don't have deb, ok, but the installation with a war package is quite as easy ! :wink:
Anyways, if you want this update to be easier, I made a script : http://forum.subsonic.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=10443

In fedora, it is quite the same, except you have to come from the latest .rpm build.
Then, WAR update is the same !

copying the WAR file over the old one and restarting subsonic didn't work. Can't get the site to load now... I did the chmod part and verified the settings are the same as what the old 3112 folder was. I do see a 3155 folder now, and copied my original login.jsp in there, but it's not even loading the page....

Edit: Nevermind... it just took f'ing forever once I restarted the service before I could view it online. It's working now!

Just upgraded again from 3220 to 3280 (beta1 to beta2 on 4.8 Madsonic), and again, it's just taking a long time to come back up in my browser. The service has already been started again after copying the files over, and I do have a 3280 folder under "jetty", so I know it's working...

Firsttime Init could always be longer! First Full Scan too!

Correct me if I'm wrong, first time init has to run db conversion scripts to upgrade the schema and verify data, and then I assume it runs a full scan. Sound about right?

Next upgrade will be before I go to bed, then I will check for the first time when I wake up in the morning... :-)


Maybe a suggestion could be to put up a "default" page or something, stating that Madsonic is undergoing an upgrade, and will "return shortly"...

The update wouldn't take over 3 hours, would it? I've restarted the service only the one time (stop service, update WAR file, start service), and that was about 3.5 hours ago.

I may just restart my computer to see if that does anything. Just downloaded some OS updates anyway....


Edit: Ended up rebooting, but before I did, I checked my services that were running, and even though I told SS to start again, it was in a "hung" state, somewhere between started and stopped. I tried starting it again, and got the OK, but it still wasn't properly started. So I rebooted and am waiting for it to come up now...

Question on Fedora WAR updates...

I think I found why I was having problems with my installation... I wasn't coming from the latest RPM build. I did a "yum remove subsonic", then updated to the latest RPM build (which when I did this, it was 3280), and just now instead of doing an RPM update to 3292, it looks like the WAR update will work.

Question is this: If I continue with RPM updates, do I have to manually uninstall the previous version first (similar to what I did above), and will doing so remove any settings (user accounts, access rights, etc...)?

Also, is there a Subsonic "repository" that can be added, so all that is needed for an upgrade is "yum update subsonic" ?

I don't have much experience when dealing with .war packages if someone could possible do a "how-to" via terminal, that would be awesome. I did install Madsonic from a .deb file. After that I have no idea what to do. Thanks in advance.
