Does update the Linux os of the server hosting Openkm may cause any problem?

Post by mamad »

Hi guys
I have installed Openkm-6.3 CE with Mysql 5.5 on a Debian 8.7 OS
Because of some reasons, I need to upgrade the Debian os to the latest release
Before starting the process I want to know does this action may cause any problem on Openkm or maybe some configurations will be needed after upgrading the OS ?
Thanks in advance

Should not have issues with it. However, always it is a good practice to make a backup (especially the database what is the most problematic point ). Consider to get OpenKM working you need:
* Java installed and working ( an issue here maybe the current Jave version be replaced by newer -> verify after the upgrade -> in case there are some change -> set the desired version as default Java version )
* Usually database engine upgrades should be working fine ... anyway keep a database dump is a good practice and you do not expend much time ( in this section of the documentation you have part of the script used to backup the database https://docs.openkm.com/kcenter/view/ok ... ackup.html )
* All the data usually is into tomcat-XXX folder -> quite strange in an upgrade the filesystem be affected but you can keep a copy it before starting the process.
