Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS 5.9 Complaints about PostgreSQL 8.4

Posted by Frank Bergmann on

Thanks for the information on HEAD. Just FYI, the version number on HEAD already include 5.10.x.

So we'll need to patch OpenACS 5.9 to work with PostgreSQL 8.4, because we need to test with quite a lot of existing installations.

The version number of on head is always one number higher than the version number of the release branch (as mentioned, needed for apm management).

The recommended action is certainly to upgrade pg8.4 to 9.*. this is typically just a pg-dump + pg-restore (since pg 9.0, there is pg_upgrade). Pg documentation [1] contains an example for using pg_upgrade from 8.4.
