Site upgrade planned outage - Sunday 2017/10/24

Post by RogerClark » Fri Sep 22, 2017 12:26 am

Update. Don't have time to do this today. I'll try to do it tomorrow (Sunday)

Guys

I've noticed that there are security updates that I need to apply to the site.

I'll attempt to update on Saturday, but in the past updates have not happened smoothly and I need to make sure the DB and the filesystem is fully backed up to my local machine before I try the update.

Unfortunately there does not seem to be an update package available for this :-( which makes things more complex ...

Edit.

Looks like I need to overwrite most of the files with new versions.

I've no idea why they simply don't have a separate zip file with config.php and the user files directories removed (as this is effectively what the upgrade instructions tell you to do yourself)
