Upgrading from Review Bot 1.0+

Upgrading Review Bot is easy. To start, upgrade the extension on the Review Board server:

$ sudo pip install -U reviewbot-extension

And then upgrade each worker:

$ sudo pip install -U reviewbot-worker

(If you’re installing in a virtual environment, don’t use sudo.)

Depending on your configuration, you may need to restart or reload your web server. The specific command depends on your individual setup, but is usually something like the following:

$ sudo service httpd reload

Open the Review Board administration page and click Extensions. You should see the new version of Review Bot installed.

Upgrading from Review Bot 0.1 or 0.2

The configuration of Review Bot 0.1 and 0.2 worked differently than modern versions, so to start, make a note of all your settings.

Then you’ll need to uninstall the old extension on the Review Board server:

$ sudo pip uninstall Review_Bot_Extension

And then uninstall each worker:

$ sudo pip uninstall ReviewBot

Then follow the installation instructions to install a modern version.
