Upgrade 2.8 to 2.9

Post by jkurzner » Thu Aug 17, 2017 7:29 pm

Trying to update from 2.8.22 to 2.9 and looking at the upgrade documentation there is a missing part. It states that after deleting all the directories you need to run "http://www.example.com/faq/setup/update.php" However, that file or directory does not exist. It fails to mention that you have to download 2.9 and upload the contents to the old installation. Next, when I try to run the update at that link, the pages redirects to


If I remove the second setup directory I do get to a setup page, but it is showing that I am missing ext/fileinfo in php.ini

I'm assuming that is something I have to work with my hosting provider on, but wold love to know what else to try. My original 2.8 installation was running under 5.4.45 php and I am working on 5.5
