Hello. I have taken over admin of an Indico system set up as follows:
- Indico 2.3.2 running on Ubuntu 16.04 in AWS
- PostgreSQL 9.6.19 AWS RDS Aurora database
The ‘Upgrading from 2.x to 3.x’ instructions look pretty clear (thanks!), but I have a couple of questions:
I urgently need to upgrade the database, to something newer than PG 9.6.19. If I do this first, will Indico 2.3.2 be happy with that? If so, will any newer PG version be OK, or should I go for a certain version (10, 11, 12, 13)?
The upgrade instructions mention that the /opt/indico/archive subdirectory should be copied over to the new server when migrating the data of an old Indico 2.x service to 3.x on a new server. However, I suspect my 2.3.2 install on Ubuntu 16.04 has a long history. It has events dating back to at least 2002 (19 years ago!). The /opt/indico/archive contains these subdirectories:
Are these the subdirectories you’d expect to see in the archive subdirectory?
oldarchive contains subdirs 2010, 2011, … etc to 2017 Doing some investigation of older events in my Indico, it seems the attachments for these old events are held here, including events from well before 2010.
I suspect oldindico isn’t needed. oldindico/db contains some Data.fs* files from 2017. oldindico/etc contains some Indico .conf files from 2015.
Any guidance or experiences gratefully received.
