IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Important You need to execute manually a migration script (can be executed after your upgrade, while your PeerTube instance is running) to migrate HLS files name:

    • Docker installation: cd /var/www/peertube-docker && docker-compose exec -u peertube peertube node dist/scripts/migrations/peertube-4.0.js

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • /!\ VERY IMPORTANT /!\ We added a unique index on actors usernames to fix some federation bugs.
    Please check now if you have conflicts:
    • Go inside your database using sudo -u postgres psql peertube_prod and run select "preferredUsername" from actor where "serverId" is null group by "preferredUsername" having count(*) > 1;
    • If you have some results, it seems you have duplicate channels/accounts.
      For every entry, you’ll have to change the preferredUsername of the entry you want (so they are unique).
      The updated actors could have some federations issues
  • Changed auto_follow_index setting configuration: you now have to use the complete URL in index_url.
    If you used the default one, you now need to use https://instances.joinpeertube.org/api/v1/instances/hosts.
    This way, you can also use a direct raw URL (Gitlab, Github, pastebin, etc.) using a simple text format and easily maintain small communities or instance recommendation lists.
  • PeerTube requires NodeJS v10 or v12

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • /!\ VERY IMPORTANT /!\ You need to execute manually a script (can be executed after your upgrade, while your PeerTube instance is running) to create HLS video torrents:
    • cd /var/www/peertube/peertube-latest && sudo -u peertube NODE_CONFIG_DIR=/var/www/peertube/config NODE_ENV=production node dist/scripts/migrations/peertube-2.1.js
  • /!\ VERY IMPORTANT /!\ In the next PeerTube release (v2.2.0), we’ll add a unique index on actors usernames to fix some federation bugs.
    Please check now if you have conflicts using:
    • Go inside your database using sudo -u postgres psql peertube_prod and run select "preferredUsername" from actor where "serverId" is null group by "preferredUsername" having count(*) > 1;
    • If you have some results, it seems you have duplicate channels/accounts.
      For every entry, you’ll have to change the preferredUsername of the entry you want (so they are unique).
      The updated actors could have some federations issues
  • We now use Buster for the docker image, so the image name changed:
    • production-stretch becomes production-buster
    • v2.x.x-stretch becomes v2.x.x-buster
  • Users cannot create more than 20 channels now to avoid UX and actor name squatting issues
  • We added a warning if the videos directory is the same than the redundancy one in your configuration file: it can create some bugs
