View Full Version : Upgrade 5.5 to 8.23
December 27th, 2012, 12:58 PM
Been far too long since I installed my PhotoPost without updates. I am upgrading from 5.5 to 8.23 and have two questions. I have re-read the installation instructions...
Are there any foreseeable problems upgrading 3 version levels?
I see an install.php and an upgrade.php however there is nothing in the instructions concerning an upgrade procedure versus the installation procedure. What is the proper procedure for UPGRADING?

1. Nope you would just upload all the files and run the required upgrades one at a time.
2. The upgrade documentation is in the upgrade text document under the documentations folder of the downloaded code.

Found it. Thank you, I overlooked that folder.
BTW my compliments on the software as it has been running flawlessly for the last five years without an update patch or tweak!

Not a problem looks like though it was a good idea to upgrade looking at your mysql and php versions. ;)

Yes, there were many "depreciation" warning messages displaying. I am having to correct some style and display problems that have cropped up since the upgrade though. No big deal as it will give things a refreshed look.

Yeah well depending on your integration type and what issues you have you can post but for instance like in the release notes if you use a standalone photopost style you can not use old styles you must delete your stylesheets directory and use the new stylesheets. If your using a forum integration and using some old style there can be issues with style mapping to older code so it all depends. ;)
An answer all depends on your issue. I was sure when reading your php version you had to be getting deprecated errors since that old code was not designed to run on PHP 5
