Upgrade Review Board

Use these instructions to upgrade Review Board to a latest build.

Attention: Installing or upgrading TeamForge needs root privileges. You must log on as root or use a root shell to install or upgrade TeamForge.

Do this step by step on the TeamForge Application Server

  1. Download the Review Board installer zip file from http://collab.net/downloads/integrations#tab-1 and save it in the /opt/collabnet folder
  2. The default Review Board data directory has been changed from /opt/collabnet/reaviewboard/data to /opt/collabnet/teamforge/var/reviewboard/data in TeamForge 17.4. If you are upgrading from TeamForge 17.1 or earlier to TeamForge 17.4 or later, regardless of whether you upgrade Review Board on the same or new hardware, you must back up your Review Board data directory from /opt/collabnet/reaviewboard/data and restore it to /opt/collabnet/teamforge/var/reviewboard/data.
    Tip: The Review Board database is backed up already when you have upgraded TeamForge. So, it is not necessary to take a back up of the Review Board database again.
    1. Back up the Review Board data directory.
      • cd /opt/collabnet
      • tar -zcvf /tmp/reviewboard_data.tgz reviewboard
    2. Copy the /tmp/reviewboard_data.tgz file to the /tmp directory of the new server if you are upgrading Review Board on a new hardware.
  3. Make sure that "reviewboard" , "reviewboard-database" and "reviewboard-adapter" identifiers have been added to the host:SERVICES token of the TeamForge Application Server's site-options.conf file.

  4. Unzip the RBInstaller-17.4.7.zip file.
    • cd /opt/collabnet
    • unzip RBInstaller-17.4.7.zip
  5. Modify these values in the install.conf file to suit your installation environment.
    • vi /opt/collabnet/RBInstaller-17.4.7/installer/install.conf

  8. Restore the Review Board data.
    Note: The default Review Board data directory has been changed from /opt/collabnet/reaviewboard/data to /opt/collabnet/teamforge/var/reviewboard/data in TeamForge 17.4. If you are upgrading from TeamForge 17.1 or earlier to TeamForge 17.4 or later, regardless of whether you upgrade Review Board on the same or new hardware, you must back up your Review Board data directory from /opt/collabnet/reaviewboard/data and restore it to /opt/collabnet/teamforge/var/reviewboard/data.
    Note: If you are upgrading on a new hardware, ensure that you have already copied the backup of the Review Board data directory to the /tmp directory of the new server.
    1. Restore the Review Board data directory.
      • cd /opt/collabnet/teamforge/var/
      • tar -zxvf /tmp/reviewboard_data.tgz

  12. If SCM is installed on a separate box, run the following script to authenticate a scmviewer user against a TeamForge Subversion repository for creating a new review request.
    • python ./svn-auth.py --repo-path=https://<scm_domain>/svn/repos/<repo_dir_name>
