Bamboo 5.7 upgrade stuck on "alter table ELASTIC_IMAGE add column LEGACY_EBS_HANDLING bool"

Hi all,

I'm trying to upgrade from Bamboo 5.6.1 to 5.7.0. I have done the following:

  1. Taken a backup
  2. Stopped Bamboo
  3. Removed the bundled-plugins, caches, index, jms-store, serverState and temp folders from Bamboo home
  4. Created an empty index folder (that bug with Bamboo not recreating the index folder still seems to exist in 5.7 sad)
  5. Started Bamboo

When I tail the log I can lots of things happening, and then after a few minutes everything seems to stop and Bamboo is not accessible. The last line in the log is:

alter table ELASTIC_IMAGE add column LEGACY_EBS_HANDLING bool

Has anyone else come across this issue? Running on Ubuntu 14.04 with Postgres 9.3.5 as the database.

I think it would be a good idea to create a support case for this, where you could attach your logs and describe the problem in more detail. → Dev Tools → Bamboo Support

Turns out it was a problem with my Postgres instance! For anyone with Postgres issues, have a look at select * from pg_stat_activity..! smile

Can you explain the problem in more detail? I think more users could benefit from this.

The issue was that a backup process wasn't terminating cleaning, leaving a lot of open queries. Completely environment specific and not relevant to Bamboo at all! Clearly I should have done some more detailed investigation before raising this.
