Migrating from version 1.5 to 1.6

Postby pvkamath » Mon Feb 06, 2006 6:52 pm

We are thinking of migrating to the latest and greatest in testLink (version 1.6) primarily because we wanted to take advantage of the feature where the test suites can be updated by clicking a link on the main page, if one of the original tests are updated.

We would like some help regarding
1. How the tests are backed up.
2. More importantly, how the current tests can be exported in csv format to be imported into the newly installed verion of TestLink (if this is the only way out).

Thanks,
Kamath

Upgrading Link not working

There is a link to the upgrading section of the page but the link appears to be inactive .... or rather, goes back to the main page.

First backup your Database before doing NOTHING.
then, Just use the upgrade option in the installer.
There is no feature to export TC in CSV format.
You can backup your db using MySQLadministrator, this will create
a text file with the create and insert statements.
The rest is up to you and your imagination.
