    v4 v5  
    1414Get the new version as described in TracInstall, or your operating system specific procedure. 
    1515 
    16 If you do a manual (not operating system specific) upgrade, you may also later on want to remove the existing Trac code by deleting the `trac` directory from the Python `lib/site-packages` directory. 
     16If you do a manual (not operating system specific) upgrade, you should also stop any running Trac server before the installation. Doing "hot" upgrades is not advised, especially not on Windows ([trac:ticket:7625 #7265]). 
    1717 
     18You may also want to remove the pre-existing Trac code by deleting the `trac` directory from the Python `lib/site-packages` directory, or remove Trac .eggs from former versions. 
    1819The location of the site-packages directory depends on the operating system, and the location in which Python was installed. However, the following locations are common: 
    1920 * If you’re using Linux: /usr/lib/python2.X/site-packages 
    2021 * If you’re using Windows: C:\Python2.X\lib\site-packages 
    21  * If you’re using MacOSX: /Library/Python2.X/site-packages 
     22 * If you’re using MacOSX: /Library/Python/2.X/site-packages 
    2223 
    2324You may also want to remove the Trac `cgi-bin`, `htdocs`, `templates` and `wiki-default` directories that are commonly found in a directory called `share/trac` (the exact location depends on your platform). 
     25 
     26This cleanup is not mandatory, but it makes it easier to troubleshoot issues later on, as you won't waste your time looking at code or templates from a previous release that are not being used anymore... As usual, make a backup before actually deleting things. 
    2427 
    2528If you had the webadmin plugin installed, you can now uninstall it as it is now part of the Trac code base. 
     
    5053Note that this procedure will of course leave your `WikiStart` page intact. 
    5154 
     55=== Site Templates === 
     56The templating engine has changed in 0.11, please look at TracInterfaceCustomization for more information. 
     57 
    5258=== Trac Macros, Plugins === 
    53 The Trac macros will need to be adapted, as the old-style wiki-macros are not supported anymore (due to the drop of ClearSilver and the HDF); they need to be converted to the new-style macros, see WikiMacros. When they are converted to the new style, they need to be placed into the plugins directory instead and not wiki-macros, which is no longer scanned for macros or plugins. 
     59The Trac macros will need to be adapted, as the old-style wiki-macros are not supported anymore (due to the drop of [trac:ClearSilver ClearSilver] and the HDF); they need to be converted to the new-style macros, see WikiMacros. When they are converted to the new style, they need to be placed into the plugins directory instead and not wiki-macros, which is no longer scanned for macros or plugins. 
     60 
     61=== For CGI users === 
     62 
     63For those who run Trac under the CGI environment, run this command in order to obtain the trac.cgi file: 
     64{{{ 
     65trac-admin /path/to/env deploy /deploy/directory/path 
     66}}} 
     67 
     68This will create a deploy directory with the following two subdirectories: `cgi-bin` and `htdocs`. Then update your Apache configuration file `httpd.conf` with this new `trac.cgi` location and `htdocs` location. 
    5469 
    5570=== Restart the Web Server === 
     
    7691== Older Versions == 
    7792 
    78 For upgrades from former versions refer to wiki:0.10/TracUpgrade. 
     93For upgrades from versions older than Trac 0.10, refer first to trac:wiki:0.10/TracUpgrade. 
     94 
     95Note that downgrading from Trac 0.11 to Trac 0.10.4 or 0.10.5 is easy, but has to be done manually, e.g. 
     96{{{ 
     97$ sqlite3 db/trac.db "update system set value=20 where name='database_version'" 
     98}}} 
     99(upgrade can be redone the normal way later on)
