Upgrade from TeamCity 4.0.2 to TeamCity 4.5

The upgrade went flawlessly

# /home/teamcity/Teamcity/bin/ stop kill

Quick backup of file system

Quick backup of database

# mysqldump –uUser -pPassword Schema > /home/teamcity.4.0.2/teamcity.sql

Get the latest version

# wget

Delete the old installation (was getting some spring error by just overwriting the previous install)

# rm –rf /home/teamcity/Teamcity


# tar xvf TeamCity-4.5.tar.gz .

I did copy some needed stuff from previous installations like server.xml (conf/server.xml) and MYSQL driver (WEB-INF/lib),

Restart and voila TeamCity 4.5 is up and running!
