Upgrading from earier versions of Whitebeam
Whitebeam is continually being improved. It's often the case that these enhancements result in
changes to the Whitebeam database. If this happens and you are upgrading from a previous version
please check for "schema_update" files in the /var/whitebeam/conf configuration
The RPMs will require a number of other packages to be installed that provide infrastructure services required by the server. Key among these are
Apache and Postgres.
Once you've installed Whitebeam through the RPMs you'll need to create a Postgres database using the Whitebeam schema
and configure Apache to handle Whitebeam pages.
