Difference between version and

It'd be nice to see a good condensed page highlighting the changes from one release to another. Unfortunately one doesn't exist.
At line 3 changed one line
So, you are running an older version of JSPWiki, and have decided to upgrade? Good for you.
At the moment your best bet is to read the Change Log. And if someone wants to maintain the Release Notes on this wiki, I don't mind.
At line 5 changed one line
Here are some instructions on how to actually do the upgrade as smoothly as possible.

The notation $JSPWIKI_HOME will denote the place where the old JSPWiki version is installed.

!!From 2.0.x to 2.0.x
The most secure way to upgrade is to simply merge your
configuration files from your previous installation to
the location of your new installation.
At line 11 changed one line
All of the 2.0.x releases should be somewhat compatible with each other, so basically you'll just need to upgrade the files themselves.
You may want to make a backup of your previous installation,
undeploy it and deploy the new installation from scratch.

* Copy all of the .jar -files from the distribution into your $JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF/lib
* Copy the jspwiki.tld file to $JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF/
* Copy all of the main JSP files (Wiki.jsp, Edit.jsp, etc) to $JSPWIKI_HOME/
* Check out the ReleaseNotes -file for anything else.
!!Merge or copy?
At line 18 added 64 lines
The ReleaseNotes suggest that you make a brand new install and copy your old configuration over it. You should consider merging files and directories instead. Merging is better then copying. A simple copy may cause you to loose any new text or properties that might have been introduced. If you don't know how to automate the merge process, you may have to manually compare each configuration file for differences. If you use Ant, this Ant Plugin task is recommended. Code is available from [here |http://www.hydrogenline.com/ant/ant_md.zip]
!!Upgrading from the same release (From 2.x.y to 2.x.z ):
When upgrading to the same version, both top-level JSP files and default files are compatible. Basically you'll just need to upgrade your changes to the files themselves. Merging is done from your backup of the previous installation ($JSPWIKI_HOME)to the location of your new installation.
* Install the JSP files (top-level and
the default template)
** Copy all top-level JSP files (Wiki.jsp, Edit.jsp, etc) from $JSPWIKI_HOME/
** Copy all default template JSP files from $JSPWIKI_HOME/$myDefault
* Install the set of JAR files.
** Copy all of the .jar -files into your $JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF/lib
The following configuration files have typically been modified in the old version and need to be merged with the new files:
*in the $JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF directory
** jspwiki.properties
** web.xml
** jspwiki.policy
** jspwiki.jaas
** jspwiki.tld
** oscache.properties
** groupdatabase.xml
** userdatabase.xml
*in the $JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF/lib and $JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF/classes directories
**merge your plugin libraries and filter files
!!Important:
*In JSPWiki 2.3+, JavaCryptographyArchitecture[JCA|http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se-eol.html]is used. If the jspwiki.jks file is missing, the server won't recognize the JSPWiki.jar file as secured. Therefore, move your jspwiki.jks file from for example {{$JSPWIKI_BUILD_HOME/etc/jspwiki.jks}}) to the {{$JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF}} directory on the server. The JSPWiki.jar file is now signed so this step is crucial; failing to do so will cause the new security checks to fail. For more info see:[KeyStore|http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/security/KeyStore.html].
*If you added plugins to the old tld file, be sure to include these in the new.
!!Upgrading from a new version (2.x version to 2.y version):
The ReleaseNotes file that is in every JSPWiki distribution details the differences between the stable versions (2.0, 2.2). However, any odd-labeled version is a development version, and therefore the ReleaseNotes are not necessarily updated that well. The goals for future versions are documented [here | http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/RoadMap]
When upgrading to a new version, *always* assume that the top-level JSP files are incompatible and *must* be upgraded every single time. View files (those under templates/) are normally kept compatible. There might be bug fixes, though, which is why it is a good idea to upgrade the default template as well. If you want to "freeze" the template, make a copy of the default template, call it "mytemplate" and use that. JSPWiki will then fall back to the default template in case any new JSP files are added.
* Please reinstall in a new directory. Then move your modified
templates into the new templates/ -directory. You MUST
have the default template in place, else things might not
work. If you have modified the default template, please
rename your old template to "mymodifications" or something.
You must NOT modify the default template anymore.
* Replace jspwiki.properties with your old configuration file.
It should run unmodified, though you might want to go through
the new file to see new options. Most specifically:
* jspwiki.baseURL is now mandatory
* jspwiki.workDir is a good idea to set
* Set jspwiki.security=off, if you don't want JSPWiki to
use its own security system. If you do, head over
to doc.jspwiki.org/2.4 for further instructions.
* You can copy your old filters.xml to WEB-INF/classes
Upgrading from earlier installations:
* Please make a complete reinstall. Your wiki pages will still be
compatible, and the configuration for the most part.

* SystemInfo.jsp is gone. Instead, there is now a page called
"SystemInfo".
* System.jsp is gone. Instead, there is now a page called
"System".

!Wrong Version
At line 104 added one line
The problem is that when you upgrade, the compiled JSP files contain the compiled version of the version number as well... This problem has actually been solved in 2.1.

!Nobody seems to have any permissions
Make sure you've copied the Java [KeyStore|http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/security/KeyStore.html] file {{$JSPWIKI_BUILD_HOME/etc/jspwiki.jks}}) to the {{$JSPWIKI_HOME/WEB-INF}} directory on the server. JSPWiki 2.3+ uses the JavaCryptographyArchitecture [JCA|http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se-eol.html]. Absent the jspwiki.jks file, the server won't recognize the JSPWiki.jar file as secured. -- MurrayAltheim
!Search is not working properly
''I upgraded from 2.2.33 to 2.4.71 and a word that can be found in the main page cannot be found by the search function. However, when I modified the main page, the search was able to find it. So it seems like there is some kind of refresh required. How am I able to do that so that I don't have to open and save every page?''
Define the working directory to the jspwiki.properties file and the search will work just fine.
