2017-12-26 06:15:38 GMT <bhuvana_> hi all

2017-12-26 06:29:46 GMT <bhuvana_> how to upgrade yui 3 from yui 2 in alfresco community edition?

2017-12-26 07:20:41 GMT <bhuvana_> https://github.com/yui/yui3/releases

2017-12-26 07:20:42 GMT <alfbot> Title: Releases · yui/yui3 · GitHub (at github.com)

2017-12-26 09:17:40 GMT <bhuvana_> i downloaded 3 release of YUI

2017-12-26 09:17:58 GMT <bhuvana_> how to upgrade yui 2 to 3 in alfresco community

2017-12-26 09:18:06 GMT <bhuvana_> if any one have idea

2017-12-26 09:18:43 GMT <angelborroy> bhuvana_ probably this is not possible (or at least it’s not worthy)

2017-12-26 09:18:54 GMT <angelborroy> bhuvana_ why to upgrade?

2017-12-26 09:23:57 GMT <bhuvana_> angelborry:The vulnerability is on the YUI [Framework] in Alfresco community edition, while displaying the files [video] YUI Java script library will render onto the browser by uploading video files.

2017-12-26 09:25:05 GMT <angelborroy> bhuvana_ probably it should be easier to backport the patch to 2.9

2017-12-26 09:25:47 GMT <bhuvana_> how should i proceed

2017-12-26 09:26:22 GMT <angelborroy> probably identifying the patch in YUI and copying the code to Alfresco YUI

2017-12-26 09:28:08 GMT <bhuvana_> is there any link to apply patch in alfresco

2017-12-26 09:28:22 GMT <angelborroy> no, you have to investigate by yourself

2017-12-26 09:32:58 GMT <bhuvana_> angelborry:ok,i found in share yui-patch.js

2017-12-26 09:34:11 GMT <bhuvana_> https://pastebin.com/GF46yXNQ

2017-12-26 09:34:12 GMT <alfbot> Title: /** * Patch to Menu to allow empty groups to remain in the menu structure. * - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2017-12-26 09:34:53 GMT <bhuvana_> angelborry:is it already patched to 2.9 it seems

2017-12-26 09:34:59 GMT <bhuvana_> is it right?

2017-12-26 10:50:32 GMT <rds> Is there any merit in manual installation over using the pre-packaged installer? Is it okay to just use the packaged installer for a small enterprise environment or should i set up the environment manually?

2017-12-26 10:55:23 GMT <angelborroy> rds probably using installer is enough for you

2017-12-26 10:55:48 GMT <angelborroy> rds manual installation allows to control deeper every component and service of your platform

2017-12-26 10:56:07 GMT <angelborroy> rds take a look here: http://beecon.buzz/2017/assets/files/EF09/EF09-Installing-Alfresco-components-1-by-1.pdf

2017-12-26 11:09:19 GMT <rds> Thanks. I run a 20ish user environment w/ no clustering.

2017-12-26 11:12:13 GMT <rds> It is not an intense-use environment but it is critical (20ish office users support 100ish on-field manufacturers) so i can't afford incosistency or data failure

2017-12-26 11:18:47 GMT <rds> Also. Is there any actual merit in splitting Alfresco server and Postgres Server in two different VMs?

2017-12-26 11:21:44 GMT <angelborroy> rds depends on your requirements

2017-12-26 11:22:22 GMT <angelborroy> rds if you have Alfresco in one server and postgres in a different one you can (by instance) use a cluster for database

2017-12-26 11:22:22 GMT <rds> I have an other application using Postgres but i am not sure it would be a good idea to share the DB

2017-12-26 11:22:44 GMT <angelborroy> again, depends

2017-12-26 11:23:59 GMT <rds> In case of a single-cluster DB and application, and supposing the DB is not shared, would it be better performance-wise to keep all in a single VM?

2017-12-26 11:25:00 GMT <angelborroy> For a 20 user environment, probably installing all together with the installer is enough

2017-12-26 12:27:11 GMT <rds> Tgabjs a lot Angel

2017-12-26 12:27:16 GMT <rds> hanks*

2017-12-26 12:27:21 GMT <rds> Thanks*

2017-12-26 12:27:21 GMT <rds> gee

2017-12-26 12:28:30 GMT <rds> Also i was wondering yesterday whether it was possible to disable categories altogether (as in not even having the category tree show up)

2017-12-26 12:28:50 GMT <rds> Because i doubt they are any useful in my case

2017-12-26 12:32:06 GMT <angelborroy> rds probably you can adapt Share to hide categories

2017-12-26 12:45:50 GMT <rds> Thanks again

2017-12-26 12:45:55 GMT <rds> I will check that out

2017-12-26 15:49:27 GMT <qwebirc34876> Hi guys I got a problem installing alfresco-community 201707 on ubuntu any help would be apreciate
