Upgrading Plone: 2.5.3 to 2.5.5

How to perform an in-place minor upgrade on a version 2.5.3 Plone site to 2.5.5 in Linux.

  1. scp or wget the Plone-2.5.5 tarball from Plone.org.
  2. mv Plone-2.5.5.tar /var/plone/zeocluster/Products/
  3. cd /var/plone/zeocluster/Products/
  4. tar xvf Plone-2.5.5.tar
  5. cd Plone-2.5.5
  6. chown -R plone:wheel .
  7. rm -rf ../Archetypes ../CMFDynamicViewFTI ../DCWorkflow ../PasswordResetTool \
    ../PluginRegistry ../ATContentTypes ../CMFFormController ../ExtendedPathIndex \
    ../PlacelessTranslationService ../PortalTransforms ../ATReferenceBrowserWidget \
    ../CMFPlacefulWorkflow ../ExternalEditor ../PloneErrorReporting ../ResourceRegistries \
    ../CacheFu ../CMFPlone ../GenericSetup ../PloneLanguageTool ../SecureMailHost \
    ../CMFActionIcons ../CMFQuickInstallerTool ../GroupUserFolder ../PlonePAS \
    ../statusmessages ../CMFCalendar ../CMFSetup ../kupu ../PloneTestCase ../validation \
    ../CMFCore ../CMFTopic ../Marshall ../PloneTranslations ../CMFDefault ../CMFUid \
    ../MimetypesRegistry ../PluggableAuthService
  8. mv -f * ../
  9. /etc/init.d/zeo restart
  10. In the ZMI, migrate the content types:
    /portal_atct/manage_versionMigration/
  11. In the ZMI, migrate the Plone site:
    /portal_migration/manage_migrate/
  12. In Plone, re-install the updated Plone system products:
    /prefs_install_products_form

    I also had to re-install Kupu, restart, and redefine all of my custom Kupu configurations, since the Plone upgrade also “upgraded” my Kupu installation from 1.4.4 to 1.3.9.

That’s it.  I hope this helps.
