If you want to be able to update the core OSQA app from their subversion repo, then take the following steps:

  • Make a backup copy of your existing osqa/settings_local.py (and any other files you might have added or modified after installing your OSQA app.
  • SSH into your server and run the following commands (replace app_name with the name of your app):

    cd ~/webapps/app_name
    rm -r osqa
    svn co http://svn.osqa.net/svnroot/osqa/trunk osqa

  • Put your settings_local.py back into the osqa directory (or better yet, make a new settings_local.py based on the template from the checkout and plug in your settings there).
  • Replace any other files that you backed up prior to the change.
  • Perform any migration steps needed to update your site to the new OSQA version
  • Restart your Apache.

Hope that helps!

Apart from the url: svn co http://svn.osqa.net/svnroot/osqa/trunk the rest is working like a charm

Our installer doesn't place the app under version control. Running the svn update command in a directory that's not under subversion's control will show that message.

If you want to use a version control tool for your code, you can install one using our control panel. We have documentation for subversion, git, mercurial and bazaar.

ok, thanks for your update. I added subversion but how do I place the app under version control. Please note I have two instances of osqa and I want both to be upgraded to new versions independently.
