Upgrading to Numbas 2.0#

Upgrading to Numbas 2.0 from an earlier version is a straightforward process, but can take a long time and disk space if you have a very large database.

Follow the instructions below, using a shell in your numbas_editor directory.

  • Remove editor/templates/index.html - Numbas 2.0 looks for your custom welcome message in editor/templates/index_message.html.

  • Get the latest code:

    git pull
  • Upgrade Python libraries:

    pip install --upgrade -r numbas/requirements.pip``
  • Migrate the database (this could take a while):

    python manage.py migrate
  • Copy editor/templates/index_message.html.dist to editor/templates/index_message.html, and customise to your liking.

That’s it!
