google import - use same license phrase as all other code (23:02) < ThomasWal> xorAxAx: you should change the license of the google import code so it uses same licensing as moin (23:03) < ThomasWal> (currently it tells "GPL v2", moin is "GPL v2+") (23:05) < xorAxAx> ThomasWaldmann: its fine if you change it

<h3 id="Code_update">Code update</h3>
<span class="anchor" id="line-42"></span><p class="line862">First remove the old <a href="http://master19.moinmo.in/MoinMoin">MoinMoin</a> code (including any <tt class="backtick">*.pyc</tt> and <tt class="backtick">*.pyo</tt> files). <span class="anchor" id="line-43"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-44"></span><p class="line862">If you are installing from the original distribution archive, run "<tt>python&nbsp;setup.py&nbsp;install</tt>" as root to install the new version. <span class="anchor" id="line-45"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-46"></span><p class="line874">If you are using some Linux (or other) distributor's package, please read their docs. <span class="anchor" id="line-47"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-48"></span><p class="line874">Please also upgrade your moin.wsgi (or other) server adaptor file.

<h3 id="Configuration_update">Configuration update</h3>
<span class="anchor" id="line-51"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-52"></span><p class="line874">After upgrading, your existing wiki should continue to work (the goal is to have sane defaults for any new config values, but then there can be bugs and also changes that must break compatibility). <span class="anchor" id="line-53"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-54"></span><p class="line862">Check that this is indeed the case, and then take the time to check the CHANGES file in your distribution archive. Often, new features will be invisible unless you extend your configuration in <tt class="backtick">wikiconfig.py</tt>. <span class="anchor" id="line-55"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-56"></span><p class="line862">Check that you have the latest "intermap.txt" file; If you have your own entries, you can point "shared_intermap" at a file loaded <em>before</em> the file in your data directory, which takes precedence (i.e. have global entries in the shared one, private entries the data dir file). <span class="anchor" id="line-57"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-58"></span><p class="line867">
<h3 id="Static_files">Static files</h3>
<span class="anchor" id="line-59"></span><p class="line874">Since release 1.9.0, moin has a built-in static file webserver to serve the CSS, images, javascript, etc. files that come with moin. <span class="anchor" id="line-60"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-61"></span><p class="line862">This static file web server serves the files contained in path <tt class="backtick">MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs/</tt> at URL <tt class="backtick">&lt;script&nbsp;URL&gt;&nbsp;+&nbsp;&lt;url_prefix_static&gt;</tt>. <span class="anchor" id="line-62"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-63"></span><p class="line862">So, if you run your wiki at the root of your site (/) the default <tt class="backtick">url_prefix_static</tt> will work for you. <span class="anchor" id="line-64"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-65"></span><p class="line862">The default <tt class="backtick">url_prefix_static</tt> is something like <tt class="backtick">../MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs</tt> (VVV is 190 for moin release 1.9.0) and VVV will change on every release (moin 1.9.1 will use <tt class="backtick">../MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs</tt> by default). This is done to be able to use a very long cache lifetime for the static stuff, so your wiki will be faster and cause less load and traffic. Even if you don't use a long cache lifetime, a changing <tt class="backtick">url_prefix_static</tt> makes sure that if you upgrade your wiki all your wiki users will immediately get the fresh static stuff. <span class="anchor" id="line-66"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-67"></span><p class="line862">If you run your wiki at a different base path, you need to set <tt class="backtick">url_prefix_static</tt> to the correct value, e.g. <tt class="backtick">url_prefix_static&nbsp;=&nbsp;'/mywiki'&nbsp;+&nbsp;url_prefix_static</tt> if you run your wiki at <tt class="backtick">/mywiki</tt>. <span class="anchor" id="line-68"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-69"></span><p class="line862">If you want moin to serve a different directory than the default <tt class="backtick">MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs/</tt>, you can change the path in <tt class="backtick">moin.wsgi</tt> like <tt class="backtick">shared='/my/path/to/htdocs'</tt> to serve static files from that path. <span class="anchor" id="line-70"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-71"></span><p class="line867"><img alt="(!)" height="16" src="../MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs/modernized/img/idea.png" title="(!)" width="16" /> Please note that if you serve the static files from a different than the "builtin" directory, you are responsible for updating those files from <tt class="backtick">MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs/</tt> when you upgrade your moin installation. <span class="anchor" id="line-72"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-73"></span><p class="line862">Alternatively to using moin's builtin static files server, you can also serve the static files with some external webserver (e.g. with Apache, if that is your main web server). If you want to do this, just have your web server catch the requests for stuff below the <tt class="backtick">url_prefix_static</tt> URL (before they reach the moin script) and serve those requests with the files from <tt class="backtick">MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs/</tt> (or a copy of them). <span class="anchor" id="line-74"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-75"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-76"></span><p class="line867">

Just use the fresh underlay directory we provide in the distribution archive (move the old one to your backup directory). <span class="anchor" id="line-79"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-80"></span><p class="line862">If you previously modified some system page in your wiki (see <a href="http://master19.moinmo.in/EditedSystemPages">EditedSystemPages</a> on your wiki), you might want to <em>Delete</em> them to use moinmoin's updated version (warning: you can't un-delete that page later). <span class="anchor" id="line-81"></span><span class="anchor" id="line-82"></span><p class="line867">
