Orion 3.0 (CompatibilityMetaStore)

The legacy server metadata is organized as follows:

File / Folder Description
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core/.settings/Projects.prefs Project list
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core/.settings/SiteConfigurations.prefs Site List
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core/.settings/Users.prefs User List, includes preferences, user rights and list of workspaces
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core/.settings/Workspaces.prefs Workspace list
/serverworkspace/A folder root of "Project" with project id "A"
/serverworkspace/B folder root of "Project Two" with project id "B"
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.user.securestorage Equinox Secure Storage for Users and Passwords
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core.search Orion Search
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core/tasks Orion Tasks

Notes

If you wish to use this legacy Orion 3.0 storage format, you should specify in your orion.conf:

Orion 4.0 (SimpleMetaStore)

The simple server metadata is organized as follows:

File / Folder Description
/serverworkspace/metastore.json Root of the orion filesystem.
/serverworkspace/an/anthony/user.json Server metadata user file, includes preferences, user rights and list of workspaces
/serverworkspace/an/anthony/OrionContent/workspace.json Server metadata workspace file, includes project list
/serverworkspace/an/anthony/OrionContent/Project.json Server metadata project file, includes content location
/serverworkspace/an/anthony/OrionContent/Project/ folder root of project "Project"
/serverworkspace/an/anthony/OrionContent/Project Two.json Server metadata project file, includes content location
/serverworkspace/an/anthony/OrionContent/Project Two/ folder root of project "Project Two"
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core.search Orion Search (no change)
/serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core/tasks Orion Tasks (no change)

Notes

The default layout will now be
orion.file.layout=userTree
, so user folders are organized in a hierarchy. In this case anthony is under /an/anthony on the server.

Orion 4.0 Migration

The server administrator should perform the following steps to migrate the server from 3.0 format to 4.0 format:

  • Backup the server. The migration renames project folders, so if there is some issue with the migration, the server may need to be restored to it's original contents.
  • Delete the old index folder /serverworkspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.orion.server.core.search. Since the projects are moved, they will be reindexed.
  • Add the properties to the orion.conf configuration file for your server:
orion.core.metastore=simple
orion.file.layout=userTree
  • Start the orion server.
  • Review the migration log in /serverworkspace/.metadata/migration.log to ensure there are no ERROR messages.
