MySQL Database Schema Upgrade for Tigase 5.1

The schema upgrade is very simple and safe but make sure the current database schema is in version 4.0.


  1. tigasedb is a database name
  2. tigase_user is a database user name
  3. mypass is database user password

First things first - make a database backup:

mysqldump -u tigase_user -pmypass tigasedb > tigasedb_dump.sql

If you need to restore database for any reason execute following commands:

msyqladmin -u tigase_user -pmypass drop tigasedb
mysqladmin -u tigase_user -pmypass create tigasedb
mysql -u tigase_user -pmypass tigasedb < tigasedb_dump.sql

Note! You may be required to use root user and his password to execute mysqladmin commands.

Now we can run schema upgrade script

mysql -u tigase_user -pmypass tigasedb < database/mysql-schema-upgrade-to-5-1.sql
