85 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
86 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
87 ** ##xwiki.properties##
88 ** ##web.xml##
89 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
90 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

92 == Issues specific to XWiki 12.9 ==
93
94 === Ratings API ===
95
96 The [[Ratings API>>extensions:Extension.Ratings API]] have been rewritten in order to support more usecases, but we [[voluntarily broke the backward compatibility>>https://forum.xwiki.org/t/drop-backward-compatibility-on-old-ratings-api/7470]] when doing so. If you are upgrading from XWiki 12.7RC1 or after, or from an XWiki version on which [[Ratings Application>>extensions:Extension.Ratings Application]] is installed, you might see some logs like that at first restart:

183 If not nice, those errors are expected: they are showing that our internal Extension Manager found that the Ratings API compatibility was broken. This error will prevent using the Ratings Application or the Like Application until you have completely performed the upgrade.
184
185 During the upgrade, you will be proposed to remove the old Ratings API extension: keep the default value for it (it should be checked) to avoid any inconsistency.
186
187 Also note that at first start, a data migration of Ratings and Likes will be performed, you might see some logs like that:
