Update rails aplication (1.1.6 to 1.2.5)

After doing the rails update (gem install rails) what should I do for
updating my rails aplication? run rake rails:update command?

Thanks,

Paulo Abreu

Test! Test! Test! Make sure everything runs. I had to stop doing a 1.1.6 to 1.2.3 update because everything kept breaking (98% not due to rails, just poorly coded). Fix all errors that come up and look into all deprecation warnings. Refactor if you need to to take better advantage of newer features.

In my case it was 2 weeks of work before I had to revert back due to all the changes that needed to be made.

For the most part though, I do believe it should still run…mostly.

HTH,
Richard

Hi Paulo

The testing thus far from moving from 1.2.3 to 1.2.5 have revealed
mainly deprecation warnings which are usually easily fixed.
