[GeoNode-users] R: migration suggestions

Hi Alessio,

thank you for your prompt answer. However, I have a doubts(I apologise if it is stupid) about your hints:

  1.  for metadata do you mean the postgresql db? in case of yes, what do you mean with 'no much', I have 42 layers in 'geonode_data' and 20 maps 116 layers and a couple of users in 'geonode' pgsql dbs. So can I dump and restore both databases? or the db structure is changed, so that I need a special procedure?
  2.  If I port the data only by geoserver, what I have after the updatelayers in the pgsql dbs? no metadata I presume, or only basic info taken from the old geoserver?
  3.  What about the porting of the look and feel of the sites I have? just copy the codes?

Thanks a lot,

Hello Eugenio,
in the case you have no much metadata to configure and few users, my *hot* suggestion is to pass through GeoServer in order to port your datasets.

So the steps would be the following ones:

1. Setup a new GeoServer 2.15.2 ( https://build.geo-solutions.it/geonode/geoserver/latest/geoserver-2.15.2.war )
2. Transfer the Data Dir from the old GeoServer to the new one (I strongly suggest to backport **only** the workspace, datasets and styles, not the security subsystem)
3. Setup the new GeoNode instance
4. Run the "updatelayers" management command (see http://docs.geonode.org/en/master/admin/mgmt_commands/index.html#management-command-updatelayers )
5. Update manually the missing permissions and metadata

Dear all,

I have a running geonode at version 2.4 dev20160525015826 configured as multisite in a ubuntu server 16.04.6 LTS.
The system administrator suggested me to update the server OS to 18.04.3 LTS for many reasons that are not the topic of this email.

I would like to know if there are suggested procedures to migrate my multisite project, data, ... to a newer version of geonode
(the most update seems to be the vs.2.10).
Just to let you know, for the previous installation I followed the custom installation,
because in the server were already running postgresql, tomcat, and so on...
Moreover, as said, I set the project to be used as multi-sites.

So I need:

  1.  to install a fresh geonode version
  2.  set-up the multi-sites
  3.  dump the data from version 2.4
  4.  load the data in the new version

Any hints or recommendations?
