Upgrading a native Windows install¶
Release 1.0 of OpenREM uses a newer version of Python and no longer uses RabbitMQ, Erlang and Celery. Instructions are only provided for Orthanc DICOM server, and no longer for Conquest. The built-in DICOM Store node has been removed.
Consider upgrading to a new Windows server instead of upgrading in place. Instructions for Upgrading to a new Windows server are provided including exporting and importing the existing PostgreSQL database.
something about a clean install, and/or not having old services that are no longer required
something about being a standardised approach which will make upgrade docs and examples easier to follow
Upgrades from 0.9.1 or earlier should review Upgrade to OpenREM 0.10.0 from 0.7.3 or later first. Upgrading to 1.0 is only possible from 0.10.0.
Then best effort upgrade docs… a lot of this can be copied from the Native Windows install instructions, or depending on what it ends up looking like, we might point there with a few admonitions to point out differences?
Export database for backup
Stop all the services
Install Python 3.10
Update PostgreSQL, Orthanc, DCMTK, Pixelmed
Add/update as necessary gettext, 7Zip, Notepad++
Install IIS if Apache/NGINX previously in use
Create virtualenv, activate
Install new OpenREM, wfastcgi
Configure OpenREM - use new local_settings.py.windows, adjust database name etc
Will database be available in new version of PostgreSQL? Or does it need to be imported?
Rename 0001_initial.py file
Do the fake-initial etc stuff
Do the rest of the manage.py stuff
