Schema change, 2012-01-12

We’ve just finished pushing out the scheduled schema change update today. A slightly rocky experience, but we’ve managed to get everything ironed out now and our servers are back to their normal selves. Before, I get into release notes, a few notes for people who’d like to upgrade their non-replicated servers. For replicated servers, please see this post.

  1. First, update your repository to the v-2012-01-12-schema-change tag.
  2. Next, disable any MusicBrainz cron jobs you might have scheduled to run
  3. Run ./upgrade.sh provided in the root directory of your musicbrainz-server checkout.
  4. Update your DBDefs DB_SCHEMA_SEQUENCE configuration option to 14.
  5. Turn any cron jobs back on

And onto the release notes!

Bug

  • [MBS-2121] – Deleting track/row in advanced tracklist editor while artist credits "dialog" is open leaves it stuck

    Hmm, I get this error:
    ERROR: function extract_path_value(text, unknown) does not exist
    What could it mean?

    Just for the recording (google?): I don’t have this problem anymore after installing postgresql-plperl-9.1, creating a new language in psql with “CREATE LANGUAGE plperlu;” and switching to the updated branch as described in https://blog.musicbrainz.org/?p=1254 (my server was standalone, not replicated).
