Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: Upgrade OpenACS Debian 3.1 32 bits

Posted by Gustaf Neumann on
if google translate serves me well the error message seems to indicate that the user connecting to the database has insufficient rights. Can it be that you connected from your old application with a different pg user to the database?

Good afternoon. Please find below the steps taken:
1) Installed and Configured only one server Debian64AMD bit ;
2) I "apt-got" openacs, Postgresql 8.4, aolserver4, dotlrn25 from that repository successfully;
3) I backed up both old appl dotlrn 2.1 debian 3.1 SERVER and database debian 6.0 Postgres 8.1 sERVER and restored both on DebianAMD64 bit. That is, I had TWO SERVERS for may dotlrn env;
4) First I tried to make old appl and restored database into this DebianAMD64, all localhost, both appl and database. Lots of mistakes as I said before;
5) I followed your instructions sent before, including the URL In short, I configured dotlrn2.5 and managed to run on port 8000 successfully. Then, I copied dotlrn.tcl, renamed to coptec.tcl and changed port, database rights and etc. This time I have assigned dotlrn2.5, as per previous instructions, to the restored database. I succeeded in connecting to the restored database and produced a 184k warn and error with 9724 lines, named coptec.log. I would post it here but it is too long. If there is a way to post it or if you would be kind enough as to give me a e-mail address so that it can be delivered to you at you earliest convenience, I would be very grateful.
Best Regards

Dear Érico,

addressing the migration problem via forum has a better multiplicator than individual mails, and more eyes can spot different problems. Normally, there is no need to send/show the full error.log since later errors are typically consequences of earlier errors. Find in your error.log the place where the server starts and search for the first "Error:". Post this with a context of about 20 lines here....

all the best
