85
86 == General Notes ==
87
88 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
89 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
90 ** ##xwiki.properties##
91 ** ##web.xml##
92 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
93 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
94
95 == Issues specific to XWiki 12.2 ==
96
97 The ##solr.remote.url## Solr configuration property has been deprecated (it still works though), and replaced by ##solr.remote.baseURL## which should now be used.
98
99 {{code language='properties'}}
100 #-# [Since 12.2]
101 #-# The URL of the Solr server (the root server and not the URL of a core).
102 #-# The default value assumes that the remote Solr server is started in a different process on the same machine,
103 #-# using the default port.
104 # solr.remote.baseURL=http://localhost:8983/solr
