This is what my upgrade file reads in the documentation directory of the pack I just downloaded 10 minutes ago.
IMPORTANT - DO NOT SKIP |
. Backup your database before doing this upgrade.
. Ensure you upload all the directories which have files that need to be uploaded to the main PhotoPost directory.
0) Download and unzip the latest build from the Members Area.
1) Check for new config-inc.php variables, some recent additions are:
$cookie_domain has been added for website cookies. I highly recommend setting this to ".youdomain.com" where
yourdomain is the name of your domain. This will enable cookies to be read across your website regardless
of the URL (i.e. galley.website.com and forums.website.com). If you are using a forum integration you
must have this set in both your forums and photopost.
$vblicense is for VB3 users and is required to encrypt your passwords if you are not using vB3Enhanced
mode. Without it you will not be able to login to VB3.
2) Upload all files - except config-inc.php, unless you modified it from the ZIP file - to
your server. You do not need install.php for an upgrade.
3) Run upgrade.php and depending on your version, run any necessary upgrades.
4) When done with upgrades, remove the upgrade.php file.
6) You are done!
If you are getting an include error that says it cannot include your forums script; you probably
skipped this step and need to rerun upgrade.php?upgrade=40&step=2&fixvbversion=1 to force a change to the variable.
Please read the CHANGELOG.TXT FILE so you know what to expect from version upgrades.
Feel free to point out the part that mentions "There is no upgrade to go from 5.61 to 5.62" .
I felt there was no need to come back to the website to hunt out upgrade instructions since the point of documentation with a program is to provide complete information.
