Getting and Installing or Upgrading BugLogHQ
There are a couple of ways in which you can get the latest release from BugLogHQ. As usual you can get the latest stable release from RIAForge at http://bugloghq.riaforge.org/
or if you want to get a snapshot of the current trunk, you can get it from GitHub
Also, if you are using GIT and want to be able to get the latest changes, then another way to get BugLog is by cloning the repo:
The default installation of BugLog is a fairly simple process:
- Unpack (or clone) into a directory named bugLog right under your web root (so that you can access it at http://your_server/bugLog)
- Create a datasource named buglog
- Execute the SQL script for your database engine (found in /bugLog/install)
And that's it!
For other installation options check out the README.MD file in the bugLog directory.
Upgrading is even easier:
- Make a copy of your main config file (/bugLog/config/bugLog-config.xml.cfm) and keep it somewhere safe
- Replace your existing bugLog installation with the downloaded version
- Restore your bugLog config file to the same location as before.
- Check the /bugLog/install/migration directory to see if there is a SQL script for the version that you are upgrading to and execute it. Note that Not all version changes require database changes.
- Go to http://your_server/bugLog/hq and click on the "reset app" link near the login prompt.
