2.9. Post-upgrade tasks

Instructions in this section should only be applied after upgrading an existing installation.
  1. Test the new release
    Perform any additional testing as appropriate to ensure the new version does not introduce any regressions.
  2. Switch the site to the new version
    The commands below should be executed from the web root (or wherever the mantisbt scripts are installed) and assume that the "live" directory (old version) is named mantisbt and the new release directory is mantisbt-1.3.x.
    mv mantisbt mantisbt-old
    mv mantisbt-1.3.x mantisbt
  3. Put the site back on line
    rm mantis_offline.php
    This should be the final step in the upgrade process, as it will let users login again.
