im on PostgreSQL 8.4 and i gotta get to >=9.1 in order to upgrade to xTuple 4.5.x
According to EnterpriseDB i'll also need to upgrade from Mac OS X 10.6 to >=10.7
So i have an OS upgrade and a Postgres upgrade to do before i can upgrade xTuple.
Any initial advice?
All backups and clones aside...
I am thinking of just using a new hard drive to install OSX 10.9 on, and then install Postgres 9.3 on that drive. Then dump and restore from the 8.4 postgres to the 9.3 postgres.
Thoughts? easier to just upgrade in place?
