Specific upgrade instructions

Always make sure you have converted your database to South before attempting an upgrade

Quick reminder of how, if you haven’t done it already:


python /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openrem/ convert_to_south remapp


python C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\openrem\ convert_to_south remapp

Upgrading from versions before 0.4.3

If you are upgrading from 0.3.9 or earlier, you will need to upgrade to version 0.4.2 first. See the OpenREM Release Notes version 0.4.3.

If you are upgrading from 0.4.0 or later, the instructions in OpenREM Release Notes version 0.4.3 still need to be followed to install/setup RabbitMQ and Celery and to update the configuration files, but you can go straight to 0.5.0 rather than installing 0.4.3.

Upgrading from version 0.4.3

pip install openrem==0.5.0

(Will need sudo or equivalent if using linux without a virtualenv)

Database migration

Assuming no virtualenv


python /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openrem/ schemamigration --auto remapp
python /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openrem/ migrate remapp


C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\openrem\ schemamigration --auto remapp
C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\openrem\ migrate remapp

Restart the web server

If you are using the built-in test web server (not for production use):

python runserver x.x.x.x:8000 --insecure

Otherwise restart using the command for your web server

Restart the Celery task queue

For testing, in a new shell: (assuming no virtualenv)


cd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openrem/
celery -A openremproject worker -l info


cd C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\openrem\
celery -A openremproject worker -l info

For production use, see
