Why is the upgrade process always so painful?

Postby jarrodarmstrong » Thu Oct 29, 2015 7:00 pm

I seem to have to reconfigure everything when I upgrade. Half of the times I have had to delete my database.

Does anyone else have these issues?

For what it's worth it's been pretty painless on my side, even with the beta versions. Unzip, move and restart service worked every time, even with ~7000 songs in the database.

Are you stopping the db before upgrading? That would explain at the least the issue of having to delete the db after a upgrade.

I run subsonic on a RPI (debian).

I do the following steps when updating and never have a problem as you (jarrodarmstrong) comment


sudo service subsonic stop
sudo dpkg -i subsonic-x.x.deb

and that's it.

I have been running SS on a windows server for years and not once did I have a failure with upgrades.
With 50,000 songs in db - always quick and painless.
I don't do anything special so the installer must be shutting things down gracefully.
