Re: [thredds] Updating from 4.1 to 4.2

Hi Roy:

Everything in $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/thredds is overwritten. So any changes in there, eg web.xml should be saved and propagated to the new installation.

Everything in  $TOMCAT_HOME/content/thredds is NOT overwritten.

Heres a doc Ive been putting together (to remind myself!) :

Please send along comments or suggestions to improve the doc.

Hi All:

When updating form 4.1 to 4.2, do I need to remove the thredds directory in 
$TOMCAT_HOME/webapps?  If not, what does it overwrite and how?  I ask this 
because I have some services   that have been added to my present setup, and 
the web.xml file has been edited.  Will these be overwritte
Something with the $TOMCAT_HOME/content/thredds folder.  What gets overwritten 
and what does not  (ie does the threddsConfig.xml get overwritten.  given some 
of the new features, do I want to see what the default threddsConfig.xml for 
4,.2 looks like.

Basically asking the best strategy to do the upgrade on an operational server 
where some modifications/additions have been made to the service.
