Please help i am a little confused.

I downloaded mylittleforum-2.4.19.zip file.

I unpacked it. The folders/files structure look identical to 2.4.18.1.

I don't see script file to ftp copy to "update folder" on server.

What to do?

Do i ftp copy overwrite all folders/files?

Which script file from 2.4.19 do i upload to "update"folder on server?

Thanks in advance

Hello

Please help i am a little confused.

No problem. The update mechanism is a bit special.

I downloaded mylittleforum-2.4.19.zip file.

check!

I unpacked it. The folders/files structure look identical to 2.4.18.1.

check!

What to do?

1. Load the following files from the 2.4.19-package to the server:

- config/VERSION
- update/update_2.3.5-2.4.php

2. Go to the admin panel, open the update page and confirm to the next step. The script will update your database in a first step.

3. After the database update you get a list of files to update. Follow the instruction and load the files into the correct directories on the server. Not listed files and folders did not change (with exception of one of us (in most cases me) forgot to add a changed file to the list).

4. You are done.

Tschö, Auge

Thank You Auge,

Your instructions above were clear and worked perfect.

I tried to follow instructions on https://github.com/ilosuna/mylittleforum/wiki/Update a little confusing.

I noticed that the Wiki instructions also mention to upload "update.sql"?

Should i have done this also?

Cheers

Nice.

No, I assume that Alex once planned to use this file for the update process like it's done with the install.sql for the installation. But that never happened. Since then the update.sql is used for documentation of the queries that are used during update. This helped in a few cases to update a forum by hand. A forum operator can update the database structure step by step with the file content as pattern and replace the outdated files afterwards.

It seems to be time to overwrite some of the Wiki entries.

Tschö, Auge

PS: Also @Micha, I updated the project forum a few minutes ago.
