Upgrading Graphite

March 17, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Recently swills@ upgraded Graphite and reconfigured how it works to fit more in to the FreeBSD file system layout.

So if you are upgrading from a graphite installation older than 0.9.12_1, you will need to follow the following instructions:

  1. Stop carbon
  2. Copy the old data from /usr/local/storage/whisper/* to /var/db/carbon/whisper/
  3. Copy the /usr/local/etc/carbon/carbon.conf.example over to carbon.conf
  4. Set the SECRET_KEY to something random in /usr/local/etc/graphite/local_settings.py
  5. Then follow the instructions after the install, including updating the httpd.conf per the message after the install
  6. Restart Carbon and Apache

Be careful that you do not miss any of the steps and you should have a working Graphite install.
