There are two steps to upgrading a LedgerSMB 1.6.x installation to 1.6.y (x smaller than y):

  1. Upgrade the software
  2. Upgrade the company database

The last step has to be executed for each company database that's set up.

Note that all the steps below are prefixed with the 'sudo' command, but these can be executed as 'root' directly as well.

Upgrading the software

This is by far the easiest part. These are the steps to go through, assuming an installation from tarball:

Before starting to update to 1.5, the following are differences to be aware of between 1.4 and 1.5:

  • JavaScript in the browser
  • Additional data constraints
  • PSGI / Apache configuration
  • Printed document templates (e.g. invoice templates)
  • Database schema maintenance

See below for explanations of each of these differences.

 

Important note: before trying to migrate your database to a new version of LedgerSMB, create a backup of the database!

System requirements

Hardware requirements

The hardware required to run LedgerSMB greatly depends on the number of users. However, with a small number of users (up to 10 or so), a 32bit server with 512MB to 1GB of memory (including Linux Server OS) and just a few hundred MB of storage (excluding OS) should be enough to get good performance.
For a 64bit server, you probably need 1GB to 2GB of memory, but otherwise the requirements are the same.
