[Koha] Koha 229 to Koha 304 ... perhaps the fasttrack was a bad track

Hi all,

I am posting this to both Koha and Koha-devel.

We are upgrading a Koha/2.2.9 instance to Koha/3.0.4. We followed the instructions at


to accomplish this feat. But we are having troubles, i.e. as posted earlier,
catalogue searching fails when restricted by Branch or restricted to "items

There is a suspect line in opac_search.pl (418): for (my $i=0;$i<=@servers;$i++)
which loops one too many times ;)

Anyway, as well, the build_holds_queue.pl script is falling over in cron
with Undefined subroutine&main::GetBranchItemRule.

My question is this. To perform such an upgrade, is it okay to follow the
procedure as documented in the Wiki (22_to_30)?

An alternative that we have discussed is to do this:

1. Upgrade from 2.2.9 to 3.0.0 (using the procedure on the Wiki)
2. Then upgrade from 3.0.0 to 3.0.1
3. Then upgrade from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2 (or is that 3.0.3?)
4. Finally upgrade from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4

Any informed opinions out there on how to do this properly?

Or perhaps the above errors I mentioned are endemic to Koha 3.0.4 and
we are barking up the wrong tree.

thanks in advance
