I am trying to migrate a workspace from Geoserver 2.4.2 to 2.6.6. We started with migrating styles. The style is visible on the Geoserver, howver on opening it is giving the error shown below. Please can anyone help?

  • how did you migrate the styles only?

  • I copied the styles from the server and pasted into the styles folder on the new server. Commented Feb 17, 2015 at 15:01
  • That won't work. Copy the whole data folder and then restart the new server, it will make all the changes for you.

  • We tried copying the whole data folder but it doesn't work. The data store gives the following error: java.lang.RuntimeException: Error occurred while building the resources for the configuration page at org.geoserver.web.data.layer.NewLayerPage.buildLayerInfo(NewLayerPage.java:330) at org.geoserver.web.data.layer.NewLayerPage$7.onClick(NewLayerPage.java:261) at org.geoserver.web.wicket.SimpleAjaxLink$1.onClick(SimpleAjaxLink.java:46) at org.apache.wicket.ajax.markup.html.AjaxLink$1.onEvent(AjaxLink.java:68) Commented Feb 17, 2015 at 16:08

The correct procedure for upgrading an instance of GeoServer is:

  1. Stop old GeoServer
  2. make backup of existing data directory
  3. Start new GeoServer pointing it to data directory.

If you find that you've fallen more than one version behind you may need to make two steps to update i.e. 2.4 -> 2.5 and 2.5 -> 2.6 but I'm fairly sure that there were no major changes between those two.

Any other changes to the data directory will probably result in unrecoverable errors.
