Upgrade from Free to PRO version

The light version of our plugins has the same database structure as PROs, which means that if you have the same version number of light and pro plugins, you do not have to migrate the database. However, we recommend a full backup before installation. In the most common case, just delete the folder with light version redmine/plugins/redmine_contacts and copy the pro version to the same folder redmine/plugins/redmine_contacts

Note: All data will be saved after the update from previous and Light to PRO versions.

Here are the common steps for any plugin upgrade (all commands should be executed from the Redmine app root folder ex. /var/www/redmine, that folder contains config.ru file)

Delete light version

cd /var/www/redmine
rm -fr plugins/redmine_contacts

Copy and unarchive pro version

cp redmine_contacts-4_0_0-pro.zip plugins/
cd plugins
unzip redmine_contacts-4_0_0-pro.zip

Install required gems

cd /var/www/redmine
bundle install

Migrate plugin tables

bundle exec rake redmine:plugins NAME=redmine_contacts RAILS_ENV=production

Restart Redmine app

For Phussion Passenger just touch restart.txt file

touch tmp/restart.txt
