    v1 v1  
     1=  Wifidog Authentication Server Upgrade = 
     2 
     3Basically, the recommended process to upgrade the authentication server of a production server in a secure manner is: 
     4 
     5 1. Read the Changelog (seriously); 
     6 1. Use sql/backup_database.sh before the upgrade; 
     7 1. Testing (optional, but recommended); 
     8   i. Checkout latest SVN on a development machine (not the same one as your server, unless you really know what you are doing: you need to modify config.php to point to a different DB, and you can't use the restore script directly; 
     9   i. Restore your live database on the development machine.  Check if everything seems in order (good tests are loging-in, viewing your most complicated portal and opening the Reusable content library).  For a more complete test (especially if you didn't upgrade in months), plug a gateway to your development server and login, and try creating a new account; 
     10 1. Run svn update on your live server; 
     11 1. Go to your auth server home page to make sure the schema has been updated (it may already have been by a random user accessing the auth server); 
     12 1. If the Changelog mentioned dependency changes (or if unsure), start the install script till the dependencies page.
