MythTV .25 - .26 Upgrade

Dan Frey,

Could you please post what to watch out for for a MythBuntu upgrade from .25 to .26? You mentioned some things on the last podcast and I was not able to write them down. or please point me to a website with this info.

Thanks.

here is the thread that discusses the issues: http://www.mailinglistarchive.com/html/ ... 00150.html

You basically have to copy and paste the database username and password from ~/.mythtv/config.xml to the appropriate places in /etc/mythtv/config.xml

You will also need to add them to mythweb config in /etc/apache2/sites-available/mythweb.conf

Steps:
1. Perform upgrade in Mythbuntu Control Centre
2. Perform apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
3. If this fails, perform updates to config files listed above
4. Perform apt-get upgrade again
5. Perform dpkg-reconfigure mythtv-database
6. reboot

Items 4 and 5 may need to be switched, as I don't recall the exact order.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
