[Release] Questions and remarks

Youcef Bey-2

Hi all,

I have many questions and remarks:

1. I have exploited the XWiki version 0.9.840, so I developed much
functionality but when I decided to upgrade to the version 0.9.1252 the
XWiki not work, it seems that the database schema is not the same for both
version, is it right? If yes, how to upgrade to the new version using old
database?
 
2. When installing the version 0.9.1252 it seems that we can not change the
name of the directory. The directory must be 'xwiki'! But with the version
0.9.840 whatsoever the directory it work perfectly.

3. This is very important to check...So when we use Google (to find) for
downloading xwiki it seems there are many and not updated web sites... So
the new user is often (I think) confused, (e.g
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xwiki/,
http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Download/Download and
http://forge.objectweb.org/projects/xwiki/)

4. I would like to know, why you have decided to use HSQL? Do you think that
it is more sufficient than MySql databases? How to administrate HSQL
database visually like MySql administrator? How to convert HSQL database to
MySql database?

5. Where can I find the news functionalities about new release (API, etc)?
This is an important thing; I think it is preferable to add a text file
(readme.txt) in the WAR file or exe installer...where user can have a quick
idea about new functionalities...

I am willing also to participate for writing complete documentation,
tutorial etc (4-6 hours/week). Are there any work done before to produce
fully documentation with examples and steps by step tutorials for learning
xwiki?

Any ideas about my questions will be strongly appreciated.

Youcef

Yes, it is. Do you have in your xwiki.cfg the line :
xwiki.store.hibernate.updateschema=1

Hum, maybe a bug. Can you tell me more about the error?

Thanks for the informations. I redirect  the page on xwiki.org to
objectweb. On sourceforge, there is a message to say the project has
moved to Objectweb. We can't do really more.

It's because it's more easy, you don't need a mysql server. If you
want to use it in production, i think it's better to use Mysql, the
performance will be better, and more easy to maintain.
You don't need to convert, you can use the export plugin. look at :
http://svn.forge.objectweb.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/xwiki/xwiki-tools/backup/

For sure. For the moment, you can find it on the log of the svn, and
on the source code. We really need to document everything, but we lack
of time.

Every help is welcome.
For the existing help, for the moment, you have :
* http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/TuTorial
* http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/AdminGuide/
* http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/DevGuide/

Mostly it was the work of Cody with the help of the community.

I've also started a new wiki fo xwiki.org. I still need to migrate the
documents and create new tutorials.

So depends on the time you have, you can impove the existing
documentation, or create new tutorials and improve the new xwiki.org

thanks,

jeremi

Dear Jeremi,

   Hum, maybe a bug. Can you tell me more about the error?

In fact, all links in the version 0.9.1252 are hard coded when installing
from the 'WAR' file. All internal links of pages refer to .../xwiki/... The
directory must be 'xwiki' else no thing work.

It is not really an error but we need just to change the link to the new
directory which I don't know how to do it.

Cheers.

Youcef
