What can i do to login to my aggregate after missing the 19th upgrade

Hi,
What can i do to recover my very important database after i missed to
notice the "Sign in with Google" for ODK Aggregate.
I desparately need help here.

You need to upgrade.

There are 3 parts to this.

  1. figure out the version you have installed
  2. backup your data (recommended)
  3. upgrade repeatedly until at ODK Aggregate 1.4.5

=== Figure out what version you have installed ===
go to https://appengine.google.com/
select the application id of the application you need to upgrade
click on Logs on the left sidebar
click on the '+' beside Options to open the search pane
search for
Version
this will generally find a /gae/watchdog record
click on the '+' beside that
scroll down / search the page for:

org.opendatakit.common.security.Realm afterPropertiesSet: Version:

and make note of the version of ODK Aggregate that you currently have.

A few lines below that, you will find a RealmString:

org.opendatakit.common.security.Realm afterPropertiesSet: RealmString:
opendatakit.org ODK Aggregate

Make note of the text before the " ODK Aggregate". That text will be your
"ODK Aggregate Instance Name" (the first text question asked by the
installer). You need to enter this name exactly as it is written here; if
you don't, all ODK Aggregate usernames will have their passwords garbled.

======backup your data===========
If you have used ODK Briefcase, now is
a good time to run it and pull all data off of your
server.

If you haven't, now is a good time to plan to
periodically use it in the future. It is the tool
we provide to enable you to pull your data
from the AppEngine server and store it
locally. It is also the tool to push local data up
to a server to, e.g., restore a server.

To use ODK Briefcase to pull the data from the
server, you need to have an ODK Aggregate
username and password configured for
Data Viewer privileges (or higher).

If you don't have such a username configured,
you'll just have to do the upgrades without the
safety net of a back-up.

===========upgrade=================
If you have any ODK Aggregate username
with Forms Management permissions, log
in as that user and go to the Forms Management
tab, and uncheck the 'Accept Submissions'
checkbox. This ensures that ODK Collect users
will not submit data to the server while you are
updating it.

Then go to the Release Notes:
https://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/AggregateReleaseNotes

Find the version of the server you are currently
at, and search up for the first upgrade that requires
manual update steps.
(a) Download that installer from here:


(b) Upgrade,
(c) perform the manual upgrade steps.
(d) browse to that server after the upgrade to make sure that you get the
Login screen (even if you cannot log in). This login screen indicates that
the ODK Aggregate sever successfully started. Log in with an ODK Aggregate
username if you can. This confirms that the upgrade worked.

Repeat steps (a) - (d) for each ODK Aggregate version that requires manual
upgrade steps.

If you have been experimenting with ODK Tables functionality, the upgrades
will be very painful, as you will need to manually delete the ODK Tables
information before upgrading; ask for details.
