Migration from 1.7.1 to 1.8 RC1

Postby tanweernoor » Tue Dec 16, 2008 5:24 pm

Hi All
We are planning to move from 1.7.1 to 1.8 RC1, i test it on a test server, migration went fine.... only issue i noticed is DB migration takes around 8 hrs for 40,000 test cases and we can not have a downtime of 8 hrs for our users.
please share if there is another better way to do it.
I am planning to use xampp for my production server.

8 hours is a looot of time.
May be is time for us to review migration process.

As usual you can do this process on week-end (I'm sorry).
What about launching this process at 18:00 ?
Another chance:
how many test cases can be changed in a normal working day ?
You start migration on a copy of DB, then ask users to write down what test has been changed.

I know this are not the clever ideas but..
