Post-upgrade

If you are upgrading to a new version of LDS, it is very likely that you would need to load a new dump of some of the databases that certain LDS functionalities make use of (internal geocoding, data observatory, etc..).

1.0.x -> 1.1.x

This version introduces an update for some extensions that Postgres uses in order to do data observatory analysis.

If you have been using Data Observatory, you will probably want to load a new dump of the DO databases in order to fully take advantage of the improvements included in this release. For instructions on how to load a new DO dump, kindly refer to the lds_do section.

1.x.0 -> 2.0.0

To do an upgrade between these versions, it is mandatory to uninstall the current LDS installation and then perform a fresh installation:

1) Uninstall the current LDS installation using carto-dataservices-uninstall.sh tool. 2) Install the new version following the instructions at lds_installation. 3) Configure you dataservices providers following the instructions at lds_providers_lds. 4) Load LDS geocoding database following the instructions at lds_geocoding. 5) In case you are using Data Observatory, please enable and load it following the instructions at lds_do.

Note
2.0.0 version requires a new Data Observatory dump `obs_2018_04_18_e0da59b211`, so make sure to load it in step number 5.

1.x.0 -> 2.1.0

To do an upgrade between these versions, it is mandatory to uninstall the current LDS installation and then perform a fresh installation:

Warning
2.1.0 version deprecates the configuration file `/etc/carto-dataservices.conf` in favor of `~/.carto/config.yml`.
Warning
2.1.0 version deprecates `carto-setup.sh` installer, in favor of `cartoctl`.
Warning
2.1.0 version required at least RHEL7/CentOS 7 linux distribution.

1) Uninstall the current LDS installation using carto-dataservices-uninstall.sh tool. 2) Migrate configuration and install

Note
For reference about how the new configuration file `~/.carto/config.yml` looks like, please check the lds\_installation section.
