i tried to upgrade from 2.7.5 to 2.8.27 according to instructions on http://www.phpmyfaq.de/docs/2.8#3.3.
Did the folowing:
copied these files from the new, unpacked version (2.8.27)
./inc/PMF (whole directory)
./inc/libs/Symfony (whole directory)
- copied ./config/ldap.php.original to ./config/ldap.php (ldap settings are empty, so no worries)
rm -rf admin
rm -rf feed
rm -rf font/
rm -rf inc/
rm -rf scripts/
complete inc directory
then did upgrade
pointed browser to update.php to update
Now the upgrade procedure says:
i wasn't able to *choose* which version i was upgrading. I clicked on "step 2 of 3". Had to change ownership of config directory to apache.apache, otherwise it wouldn't backup database.phpChoose your installed phpMyFAQ version and click the button of the update script, your version will automatically be updated. You have to update a lot of your template files due to our change using the Bootstrap framework.
it then went without a problem.
After that i clicked on "step 3 of 3" and it too went very quickly and reported that my database had been upgraded. I saw no download of files or install of any files either.
The instructions then say:
*this directory* was not present on my machine.You have to move your template files to the directory assets/template/. The default layout is be stored in the folder assets/template/default/.
I think something went wrong here. the end result in the browser did not look any different from the 2.7.5 version although the version number had been bumped to 2.8.27
- is the upgrade documentation accurate?
- are the ownership permissions of the config directory correct (originally they were root.root) ?
- do you see something wrong in the procedure i have followed?
Let me know how I can further troubleshoot this issue.
