Upgrade 12.X to 14.0

Note

If you have addons on your site, make sure you have your addons upgraded to be Django 3.2 LTS compatible before upgrading your site to Tendenci 14.

Step 1: Prepare for Upgrade

Back up your site and database!

Replace the content of the requirements/tendenci.txt with the following:

tendenci>=14,<15

We recommend to create a new virtual env instead of using the existing one.

Step 2: Upgrade Tendenci

Run:

cd /var/www/mysite/
source /srv/mysite/bin/activate
# For production sites, run
pip install -r requirements/prod.txt --upgrade
# For dev sites on your local, run
pip install -r requirements/dev.txt --upgrade
python manage.py migrate
python manage.py deploy
python manage.py clear_cache

If you have Google reCAPTCHA set up, please rename these two settings:

Rename NORECAPTCHA_SITE_KEY to RECAPTCHA_PUBLIC_KEY

Rename NORECAPTCHA_SECRET_KEY to RECAPTCHA_PRIVATE_KEY

After update is done, restart your site.
