Upgrading DHIS2 from 2.21 to 2.24

Dear All,
I have an urgent request to upgrade our national instance from 2.21 to
2.24 which i am a bit skeptical about due to the various issues from
my colleagues using DHIS2. Please can I have the simplest steps to
achieve my goal and secondly, is it advisable to use the 2.24 on our
national instance.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dhis2/dhis2-utils/master/resources/sql/upgrade-2$ver.sql

  2. shutdown nginx with
    sudo service nginx stop

  3. start deploying war files and checking logs as we go. Apply
    upgrade scripts as necessary

dhis2-deploy-war -f dhis-2.22.war dhis2; tail -f
/var/lib/dhis2/dhis2/logs/catalina.out

cat upgrade-223.sql |psql dhis2
dhis2-deploy-war -f dhis-2.23.war dhis2; tail -f
/var/lib/dhis2/dhis2/logs/catalina.out

Important first step is make sure you make a snapshot of database and
keep a copy of the original war file (in case you need to revert back
to where you started).

You might also consider revamping your postgres by upgrading to
postgres 9.5 (apparently significant performance gains according to
Lars) and installing postgis according to instructions here
http://dhis2.github.io/dhis2-docs/master/en/implementer/html/ch08s03.html#d0e832
if you want to use new clustering capability. But you can do this as
a separate step to the general upgrade.
