#1121 closed defect (fixed)

News item 'BASE Server installed' is created after running updatedb

Reported by: Jari Häkkinen Owned by: Nicklas Nordborg
Priority: major Milestone: BASE 2.9
Component: core Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I get the message

2008-09-15  BASE Server installed
Welcome to your new BASE server.

after upgrading from 2.7 to 2.8 (and even just running updatedb will generate this message). This is somewhat confusing. It should only say 'new' when the installation is fresh, otherwise the message should say something like

2008-09-15  BASE Server upgraded.
Welcome to your upgraded BASE server.

My users reacted on having a new server asking whether their data was automatically transferred.

Ah... this happens because the new item was deleted (or the title was changed). But I guess it makes no sense to create a message like this when upgrading and it should be easy to disable, or to create a different message saying that the server was upgraded.

Hmm... after looking a bit more at this, the message is actually created in the middle of the installation. I think maybe the creating of a news item should be moved from the Install class to the Webclient (in the install package) class instead and only created after a successful installation.

I'll move the news creation to the last step in the Install class.
