How to resolve upgrade issues with 0.7.49?

Upgrade from 0.7.48 to 0.7.49 did not go smoothly.

The database migrations scripts do not appear to take account of existing robots tables nor celery* tables. These bugged out many times until all those existing tables were removed manually for the script to recreate.

Unless ASKBOT_CSS_DEVEL = False it fails!

Also needs ALLOWED_HOSTS = ( '', )

BeautifulSoup needs to be installed.

The robots rules need to be recreated to allow crawling, by default this is blocked.

But after upgrade it throws an error about jquery not existing, the dates display as 2013-09-15 16:57:28 -0500 instead of a calculated result, the editor toolbar (markdown) also does not appear and the site seems to operate in a non javascript mode, aside from mathjax which operates correctly.

The is clearly some javascript fault killing things but I can't work it out.

Can you confirm that upgrade fails on uncustomized setup and `python runserver` does not give sufficient feedback for updating the file? Are you using custom templates?

Downgrading to Django version 1.4.5 has not resolved it.

Clearing the cache using the methods there has not helped. :(

I agree with you, whenever there is an upgrade, we need a seamless upgrade experience. And documentation steps for every new upgrade is needed. @Evgeny
