Part1 - upgrading from source repository

Create a copy of your site to be safe.

cd your-askbot-project
git checkout master  # assuming that you have been using this branch
git pull origin master  # will work if your branch has not been customized

Activate the virtual environment, if you have one:

source env/bin/activate  # for example
python migrate --list  # (optional) to see if the database needs to be migrated
python migrate  # actually this command can be just run
python collectstatic  # update the collection of static files

Restart the webserver process running your application (apache/mod_wsgi, uwsgi, gunicorn - whichever you are using for your deployment).

Also, there is a separate document for the initial installation of askbot - may be useful if you do not yet have an active installation.

The wiki link is broken.

We'll need to write up the document, wiki will be taken down because it's hard to keep in sync with the code, also documentation for previous versions cannot be accessed unless wiki is maintained in some special way.
