Subject: Re: [ledgersmb-users] Migration to 1.5
Thank you for your prompt response.
We are using Ubuntu 16.04 virtualize under windows 10 OS.
Installation was from repositories or using the synaptic app manager.
We can go directly to 1.6 :as needed .
Noted on the two steps process including the backup of the company
Summary: install the LedgerSMB web proxy package 'ledgersmb-1.5-apache from
the LedgerSMB PPA, which will install the main 'ledgersmb-1.5' application
package & do some basic setup for the web proxy. (In your case, of course,
it will not need to also install apache itself since it's already installed
for the old LedgersSMB version.)
Thing is, due to the current lack of some dependencies, a version of the
LedgerSMB 1.6.x series has not yet been backported to Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial),
not even our alternate package 'ledgersmb-1.6'. Our alternate package
ledgersmb-1.5 is available, with the most recent one being for LedgerSMB
version 1.5.24 (which is the most recent release of the LedgerSMB 1.5.x
Note that our alternative packages (and some of their dependencies, depending
on the Ubuntu version) are available at:
If you all are not yet familiar with the more recent versions of LedgerSMB,
how they are run has changed in that the LedgerSMB application is no longer
run directly from Apache like is the case with the LedgerSMB v1.3.x series.
Instead it is run locally on the server being used by 'Starman' and can be
made available from that server by a web proxy (via SSL by default). The
ledgersmb and the ledgersmb-1.x packages do this slighty differently, with
ledgersmb-1.x explicitly having additional packages for the 4 main web
proxies that we support directly (with example configuration files);
apache, nginx, lighttpd & varnish
Any questions, comments, etc; please let us know.
