Re: Migrating older 1.4 project to 1.9


Yeah, I too have a large project that I'll hopefully be migrating
from 1.4 to 1.9 soon.

It's about 3.5 years worth of work, over 200,000 lines of code
in about 1000 Python source file and Django template files.

So any tips you come up with will be invaluable.  Please post
anything you learn to this thread.

I've inherited a moderately large project written 2 years ago using Django 1.4, and wondering if it is worth creating a fresh 1.9 project and porting in the old code, or doing an in-place upgrade to 1.9?

I have it running on 1.4 'as is' but if I run python migrate it comes unglued as a lot of stuff has changed since 1.4.
